Sparta Rotterdam coach Leo Beenhakker has said he is delighted to get Nigerian striker Fred Friday on loan till the end of the season from fellow Dutch club AZ Alkmaar.
“Fred was at the top of our list to reinforce the attack and we are glad that we have now made it official and he will join us,” Beenhakker told the Sparta Rotterdam official website.
Friday, 22, made his debut for Lilleström in the Norwegian Eliteserien (highest level) in 2013 and forced a transfer to AZ in 2016.
He has played a total of 37 league matches and scored 18 goals.
Both AZ and Sparta are in training camp in Spain and the Nigerian striker will make the short trip to join his new club.
