Feyenoord sign AZ full-back Haps

Feyenoord have added AZ Alkmaar’s Ridgeciano Haps to their defence while sending Marko Vejinovic in the opposite direction as part of the agreement.

The 24-year-old left-back joins the defending Eredivisie champions to replace Terence Kongolo, who was snapped up by Ligue 1 champions Monaco.

As part of the transfer, Feyenoord agreed to send midfielder Vejinovic out on loan to AZ. The 27-year-old struggled to maintain a spot in manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side last season.

Haps is a product of the AZ Alkmaar youth system, starting out in their U19 side in 2012 before being sent out on loan to Go Ahead Eagles two years later.
