De Graafschap coach Andrew Ulderink has confirmed Yves De Winter as first-choice goalkeeper at the Eredivisie club.
Belgian keeper De Winter arrived at the Dutch side from native outfit Westerlo during the summer transfer window.
The 24-year-old had to settle for a spot on the bench for De Graafschap's opening four league games, with Joost Terol taking the gloves.
But Ulderink has put his trust in Winter for the last three encounters and says he plans to stick with the younger shot-stopper.
"The style of goalkeeping Yves favours is closer to the style of play we have in mind," the coach told Voetbal Primeur.
"His footballing ability is one factor and there are some other reasons outside of his game but I do not want to go into detail."
