Virgil Misidjan returns to the Eredivisie after 7.5 years.

The 27-year-old attacker signed with PEC Zwolle on Thursday until the end of the season, which will take him over from 1. FC Nürnberg.

Misidjan still had a contract in Germany until the end of the season, but that has been dissolved immediately.

PEC sees in him the desired reinforcement for the vanguard.

"Virgil is a very fast winger who can play on both the left and right wing and can impose his will on the defenders. He is the type of player we were looking for," said technical manager Mike Willems.

Misidjan previously played in the Netherlands for Willem II, where he left the Eredivisie in 2013 after relegation.

He opted for an adventure with Ludogorets and became the national champion of Bulgaria five times.

In the summer of 2018, he exchanged the Bulgarian club for 1. FC Nürnberg, which at the time still played in the Bundesliga.

'The ball has started rolling quickly'

The former Dutch youth international played a season at the highest level in Germany and scored once.

In the Second Bundesliga he played only fifteen minutes this season, partly due to an ankle injury.

Misidjan therefore did not have to think long about a switch to PEC.

"When I learned through my agent that PEC showed interest in me, the ball started rolling quickly," he says about his switch.

Misidjan is PEC's first acquisition this winter transfer period.

The number eleven of the Eredivisie will resume the season on Saturday with a home game against AZ.
