Heerenveen have sealed the loan capture of Victor Sikora from Ajax.Heerenveen have offset the loss of Santi Kolk with the loan capture of Victor Sikora from Ajax.
Kolk headed out of the Frisian club on Monday, but coach Gert Jan Verbeek has not rested on his laurels as he has swooped to sign Sikora.
Sikora failed to cement a regular place at Ajax following his arrival from Vitesse Arnhem in 2002 and coach Ronald Koeman has deemed him surplus to requirements.
Heerenveen have stepped in to offer the speedy winger the chance to breathe new life into his career at the Abe Lenstra.
Sikora has admitted he did not do himself justice at Ajax and apologised to Koeman for his shortcomings.
"He (Koeman) felt uncomfortable telling me I could leave," said Sikora who played under Koeman at Vitesse. "That was clear to me.
"He brought me to the ArenA himself and is responsible for that.
"I also apologised to him because I have disappointed him."
