Vitesse Arnhem are set to sign Heerenveen midfielder Youssouf Hersi next month.Vitesse Arnhem have announced that they will sign Heerenveen midfielder Youssouf Hersi when the transfer window reopens next month.
According to Vitesse's official website, the 22-year-old will have a medical on Tuesday before putting pen to paper on a two-and-a-half year contract with the Gelredome outfit.
The move comes after the Ethiopian-born player failed to make an impact at Heerenveen since arriving in the summer from Ajax.
Hersi had signed a three-year deal with the Abe Lenstra club, but Heerenveen boss Gert Jan Verbeek has not seen the African in his plans so far this term.
The midfielder's arrival at Vitesse should act as cover for the out-going Nicky Hofs, who looks set to join Feyenoord in the summer.
