Feyenoord and ADO Den Haag have reached agreement on the transfer of Pascal Bosschaart to the Hague-based club. The 26-year-old midfielder goes to ADO on loan this season, after which he will begin a permanent three-year deal. 'Obviously it’s difficult to leave Feyenoord, but now that I’m not playing here this is the best solution for me,' says Bosschaart.

Pascal Bosschaart went through Feyenoord’s Varkenoord youth academy, but didn’t break through until he moved to FC Utrecht in 1997, where the Rotterdam native played for seven seasons, before returning to his home-town club in 2004. Bosschaart made 53 league appearances in two seasons for Feyenoord, but has found himself down the pecking order this term, which has influenced his decision to try pastures new. 'I returned to Feyenoord two years ago with very high expectations and it’s clear things haven’t worked out completely as I’d hoped. The writing has been on the wall this year at Feyenoord as I am basically third choice behind Royston and Philippe for the left back place and wasn’t in a good position for a first team place in midfield either. In that case, as a footballer you have to think about yourself and go play somewhere else. But if one thing is certain it’s that I am leaving Feyenoord with pain in my heart. I will always be a Feyenoorder, but now I will be doing my best for ADO Den Haag.'
‘The choice of ADO Den Haag was fairly easy for me. Apart from the fact that I have a personal relationship with the coach and some of the players already, I am convinced that this club is a good fit for me. ADO is a real club of the people, just like my previous clubs FC Utrecht and Feyenoord. I’m a player that always gets involved in the fight and a fighting spirit like that is expected by the faithful fans of such clubs.’
