De Graafschap striker Soufian El Hassnaoui has signed a new two-year contract with the Dutch side.
The 21-year-old, who joined the Doetinchem club as a teenager, made his first-team debut last season, in which the club finished 14th in Eredivisie.
"Soufian is a young, talented player that we expect much from the opening period," said director of football business Looijen Loan.
He scored five goals last season, largely as a substitute, and is already off the mark this term having netted in the 2-2 draw with FC Utrecht.
