Eredivisie strugglers Excelsior have strengthened their resources with the double signing of Bart Schenkeveld on loan and Moussa Kalisse on a free transfer.

The rock-bottom Dutch side have captured 20-year-old defender Schenkeveld on loan from sister club Feyenoord.

The young stopper is close to full fitness after recovering from a cruciate ligament injury.

Forward Kalisse joins Excelsior on a free transfer after departing Romanian side FCM Targu Mures in September.

He left FC Dordrecht for the club in the summer but departed following a discrepancy over wages.

The 28-year-old has penned a deal to keep him at the Stadion Woudestein until summer 2014.

Excelsior will be hoping the double swoop will provide a much-needed boost, with the Rotterdammers languishing in the basement of the table after taking just eight points from 17 league games.
