The 26-year-old only joined Heerenveen in the summer of 2004 from Heracles Almelo, but failed to nail down a regular starting berth at the Abe Lenstra.
Heerenveen chief Gert Jan Verbeek has informed the player he can move on and his agent entered into negotiations with Maritimo.
A three-year deal has been agreed, with Rose's agent Arnold Oosterveer expecting the formalities to be concluded this week.
"We expect the deal will be completed soon," Oosterveer told De Telegraaf.
