Telstar and Vitesse have agreed to hire Jeroen Houwen for one season. The goalkeeper comes over directly from the Eredivisionist from Arnhem.
Houwen (22) is a familiar name with the Arnhemmers. For years he had been under the bar in several youth teams, and in the season 2017/2018 the goalkeeper made his debut in the first team of Vitesse. The last 12 games of the past Eredivisie season were based on Jeroen Houwen. With Vitesse he reached the Europa League through the playoffs.
Opposite the arrival of Jeroen Houwen is the departure of Joey Roggeveen. The goalkeeper leaves Telstar immediately and returns to AZ. Roggeveen has been part of Telstar since the beginning of this season.
"Due to the sudden departure of Joey we had to change gear quickly. With Jeroen there was a great opportunity to give the selection a quality boost. In addition to his qualities, Jeroen also brings experience with him and is therefore a welcome reinforcement", says technical director Piet Buter.
