‘FC Twente hits the seventh and eighth summer deal: rent with option to buy’


FC Twente will definitely strengthen itself this week with Danilo Pereira and Tyronne Ebuehi. The attacker and defender come over on a rental basis from Ajax and Benfica respectively.

Danilo and Ebuehi will join the selection of trainer Ron Jans as soon as possible, reports TC/Tubantia. The two newcomers are expected in Enschede this week. Danilo has been around with Twente for weeks and now his new work permit is finally coming, so that the Brazilian mercenary can finally train at his new club.

Twente is also round with Ebuehi. The 24-year-old right back only needs a medical examination. If that does not cause any problems, he will be the eighth summer fortification of Twente after Gijs Smal, Vaclav Cerny, Kik Pierie, Nathangelo Markelo, Lazaros Lamprou, Alexander Jeremejeff and Danilo. Except for Smal, everyone is hired.

Ebuehi switched from ADO Den Haag to Benfica two years ago. In Portugal his career fell to a dead end and to make matters worse, he was out for almost a year with torn knee ligaments. “He has let us know that he is now in top shape”, says technical director Jan Streuer of FC Twente. The club has an option to buy, according to Streuer.
