AZ striker Robin Nelisse has signed a three-year deal with Utrecht.
Robin Nelisse has signed a three-year deal with Utrecht after reaching an agreement with the Eredivisie club.
The 27-year-old has been seeking a fresh challenge as his contract with AZ Alkmaar is expiring in the close season.
Following earlier reports that Groningen had won the chase for his signature, the Rotterdammer had made it clear that he wanted to remain in Holland.
Austria Vienna launched an unsuccessful bid to lure him away for a foreign adventure.
After impressing in the Uefa Cup this term, Nelisse's signing for Utrecht will be a blow to Groningen, who thought they were leading the race.
