PEC Zwolle reportedly sign Lars Veldwijk on loan, striker comments on move

Nottingham Forest 2

The Nottingham Forest striker has reportedly signed for PEC Zwolle on loan.

As reported by Voetbal International, Lars Veldwijk has signed for PEC Zwolle on a season-long, and he has commented on why he chose to leave Nottingham Forest for the Dutch outfit.

The 23-year-old said: “I had the best feeling in PEC. I have a very nice conversation with coach Ron Jans, the team plays attacking football and PEC has become a very stable Eredivisie club.”

The Dutch forward only moved to Forest last summer, signing a three year deal, but his debut season in England was not a success. He made just 14 appearances in all competitions, failing to start a single Championship game, and not managing to score a goal.

It was not the campaign expected of him, and with trouble settling in England, and a change of manager following the appointment of Dougie Freedman, a summer exit was expected. He has now reportedly agreed a season-long loan to PEC, with the Dutch club having the option to purchase him outright at the expiration of the loan deal.

The Nottingham Post claimed that PEC were interested in him last week, whilst Brentford were also said to be keen on raiding their Championship rivals for the striker, but the latest report looks to have confirmed his move back to the Eredivisie.

PEC will be hoping Veldwijk can have the same impact in the Netherlands as he did prior to his transfer to England, when he scored 35 goals in 45 games for Excelsior Rotterdam in the 2013/14 season.
