Video: Former Everton and Sheffield Wednesday star Royston Drenthe scores for Turkish side

Drenthe

The ex-Reading man is in good form for his new club.

Royston Drenthe is certainly a player who never quite made the best of his career. The Dutchman shone at the 2007 under-21 European Championship and off the back of that earned himself a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

But he struggled at the Spanish giants and on 2011 he went on loan to Everton. It was a tumultuous spell for him at Goodison Park. He showed off his talent on several occasions but his personality did not sit well with David Moyes.

He fell out with the boss after reporting late for training.

From there he went on to play for Alania Vladikavkaz in Russia but became a free agent in 2013, when he made his return to England.

He was signed by Championship side Reading, a move which did not go well for the player. He spent six months on loan at Sheffield Wednesday this campaign but left England in January, joining Turkish top flight side Kayseri Erciyesspor.

He is certainly enjoying himself at the club.

Yesterday he scored his second goal for the club in his fifth appearance for the club. He added to a debut strike against Karabukspor with an excellent strike against Konyaspor.

It never quite happened for Drenthe in England. His spells at Everton and Reading were not great while his time at Sheffield Wednesday tailed off in the end.

Hopefully his time in Turkey will prove more profitable.
