Rachid Bouaouzan is on the cusp of signing a new deal with Sparta Rotterdam.
The 22-year-old has impressed for his hometown club this term and has opted to remain with Sparta rather than head for a new challenge.
Twente and a couple of foreign clubs have expressed interest in the forward, but Bouaouzan is happy to continue his education close to home.
Bouaouzan has verbally agreed a new deal, but a number of minor details need to be ironed out before he signs on the dotted line.
"This has a lot to do with the good feeling which exists between Sparta and Rachid," Sparta general director Peter Bonthuis told Voetbal International.
