NEC Nijmegen have completed the signing of out-of-contract Dutch midfielder Kevin Wattamaleo until the end of the season.
Wattamaleo has been without a team since last summer after former club Feyenoord turned down the option of a new deal.
The 23-year-old had trained with Danish club Viborg FF & Go Ahead Eagles but failed to secure a contract.
He will now reunite with Alex Pastoor at NEC, who he had previously worked with at Excelsior.
Wattamaleo said: "It went fast, coach Alex Pastoor called me the day before to ask if I was interested in an adventure at NEC.
"Go Ahead Eagles didn't go as I hoped. In Denmark it was unfortunately not what I had hoped.
"Danish football is different to Dutch football, you need time to adapt."
