Groningen have announced that they will sign Bas Roorda from Roda JC next summer.

The keeper was all set to make a similar move last summer, but opted to stay on at Roda for a further season.

Roorda's choice last summer was partly to do with Groningen's decision to keep Roy Beukenkamp, but he has now been persuaded to cast aide his worries and will make the move to Oosterpark next summer.

The 30-year-old started his career with Groningen in 1992, spending four seasons with the club before moving on to NEC Nijmegen in 1996.

He was first choice at NEC for four seasons before Roda lured him to Limburg in 2000.

Roorda, who has failed to figure for Roda this term, is ready to take his career full circle next summer and sign a three-year deal.
