Heerenveen midfielder Yuri Rose is expected to seal a move to Portuguese side Maritimo this summer.

The 26-year-old only joined Heerenveen in the summer of 2004 from Heracles Almelo, but failed to nail down a regular starting berth at the Abe Lenstra.

Heerenveen chief Gert Jan Verbeek has informed the player he can move on and his agent entered into negotiations with Maritimo.

A three-year deal has been agreed, with Rose's agent Arnold Oosterveer expecting the formalities to be concluded this week.

"We expect the deal will be completed soon," Oosterveer told De Telegraaf.
