FC Twente has rented midfielder Luka Ilic from Manchester City for a year on Monday.

FC Emmen took over goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald from Eintracht Frankfurt a day before the close of the transfer market.

Ilic already played in the Netherlands for the past two seasons, as City rented it out 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."

Emmen gets an experienced keeper

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

The thirty-year-old German was reserve keeper at Eintracht Frankfurt.

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

"I think it is very important that I get a good feeling at a club", says Wiedwald on the Emmen website.

"The conversations at FC Emmen gave me that good feeling right away. I'm really looking forward to this new adventure."

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.
