AZ Alkmaar have completed a twin raid on the transfer market.AZ Alkmaar have completed a twin raid on the transfer market by signing Stijn Schaars and Danny Koevermans.
Holland Under-21 international Schaars has been brought in from Vitesse Arnhem, while Koevermans has been signed from Sparta Rotterdam.
Schaars is a highly-rated midfielder and has penned a four-year contract with AZ.
He had one year remaining on his Vitesse deal but has been drafted in by AZ to compensate for the departure of Ajax-bound Olaf Lindenbergh.
Koevermans was the top scorer in the Gouden Gids Divisie last season and played a key role in Sparta securing promotion.
The 26-year-old has cost a transfer fee and has followed Schaars' lead in inking a four-year deal with AZ.
