I am happy he has signed a new contract with us.” Director of football John de Jong is also delighted that Luuk de Jong, with fourteen Netherlands caps to his name, has extended his contract. “He is an experienced striker with awesome goal scoring prowess and is known for his work ethic.”

‘Like life here very much’
