ADO The Hague also confirmed the arrival of Laurens de Bock on Monday following George Thomas. The 27-year-old Belgian comes from Leeds United on a rental basis, with an option to buy in the summer.
“I have heard and seen many good things from the club, such as the fanatic fans and the beautiful stadium. I can’t wait to get started here,” De Bock responds to the club site. “The team has had a difficult first half of the season, but we are going to do everything we can to stay convincingly in the Eredivisie. I want to contribute to that.”
For De Bock, a disappointing adventure in England comes to an end. The left-footed defender, who mainly plays as a left back, was taken over by Leeds United from Club Brugge, but never managed to convince. During the first half of the season, De Bock already played on a rental basis for League One club Sunderland, but he soon lost his base position there.
ADO fights against relegation and is currently in seventeenth place in the Eredivisie. At the end of the season, that would mean direct relegation. Led by trainer Alan Pardew, the club hopes to find its way up. Besides Thomas and De Bock, Sam Stubbs also came over from England.
