FC Emmen has strengthened itself on Monday with eight-time international Ricardo van Rhijn and the German goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald.

FC Utrecht also attracted a German goalkeeper with Eric Oelschlägel and FC Twente hires midfielder Luka Ilic for a year from Manchester City.

Van Rhijn played for sc Heerenveen last season, but his contract in Friesland was not extended.

The 29-year-old defender has signed with Emmen for one year.

The former player of Ajax, Club Brugge and AZ played eight international matches for the Dutch national team between 2012 and 2014.

He has 161 Eredivisie duels to his name.

Wiedwald also signed for one year in Emmen, with an option for an extra season.

At his previous club Eintracht Frankfurt, the thirty-year-old German was reserve keeper.

He previously played in England with Leeds United and in Germany for Werder Bremen and MSV Duisburg.

The 33-year-old Dennis Telgenkamp defended the goal of the team from Drenthe in the first four league matches.

Emmen is in the lower regions of the Eredivisie with two points.

Goalkeeper with 'experience in the top' for Utrecht

FC Utrecht has also gained a German goalkeeper.

25-year-old Oelschlägel is transfer-free after having been under contract with Borussia Dortmund for the past two seasons, where he mainly played in the second team.

He came out once for the main force.

"Eric is an athletic goalkeeper with good reflexes on the line," says FC Utrecht's technical director Jordy Zuidam about Oelschlägel, who signed until the end of the season.

"At Borussia Dortmund he was part of the A-selection and was therefore part of a team at European top level. He takes those experiences from the top to Utrecht. We see Eric as a welcome addition to the current goalkeeper group."

FC Utrecht previously recorded defender Django Warmerdam and attackers Eljero Elia, Mimoun Mahi, Moussa Sylla and Daniel Arzani.

Ilic remains active in the Netherlands

FC Twente-acquisition Ilic has already played in the Netherlands for the past two seasons, as Manchester City leased him to NAC Breda.

In Brabant, the 21-year-old Serb scored seven goals and seven assists in 45 matches.

"After the departure of Giorgi Aburjania, we wanted to add a left-footed midfielder to the selection," says technical director Jan Streuer on the FC Twente site.

"Luka knows Dutch football well and is a talented, creative football player."

Ilic still needs to get a work permit.

He hopes to join his new team next week.

"I'm really looking forward to it. I've known the club since the time that Dusan Tadic played there, I was still young and the games were live in Serbia on television."
