Winger to leave Heerenveen

Heerenveen have confirmed Jesper Hakansson will not have his deal renewed.

Heerenveen have confirmed Danish winger Jesper Hakansson will not have his contract renewed.

Hakansson is currently on loan at RBC Roosendaal but he will have no future at Heerenveen when his temporary spell finishes.

The wide man has been with Heerenveen since 1999 but he has never been capable of making a significant breakthrough at the club.

Following the appointment of Gert-Jan Verbeek last summer, Hakansson's chances became even slimmer.

He trained with Nottingham Forest last August but he failed to convince then-boss Joe Kinnear he was worthy of a move to The City Ground.

The 23-year-old subsequently joined RBC and he has made 17 appearances for the Eredivisie side.

It remains to be seen if he has performed well enough to continue his career with RBC on a permanent basis when he leaves Heerenveen.

The Abe Lenstra outfit have also decided to release reserve team players Ari Skulason, Spencer Verbiest, Emmerik de Vriese, Martijn Barto and Glenn den Uyl at the end of the season.
