Heerenveen loses captain Faik: transfer in ‘final phase’


Hicham Faik is about to leave sc Heerenveen. A transfer to a foreign club is in the final phase, according to technical manager Gerry Hamstra.

Hamstra confirmed on Thursday Omrop Fryslân and the Leeuwarder Courant that Faik is on his way to the exit. That happened at the presentation of Uruguayan defender Joaquín Fernández, who signed in the Abe Lenstra Stadium until mid-2023.

It is not known with which club Faik is talking. The 28-year-old midfielder was surprisingly missing on Saturday during the exhibition game with NAC Breda (1-0 loss), while in the days before he trained with the selection of Johnny Jansen.

Heerenveen receives a transfer fee for Faik, whose contract continued for another two years. He was a regular at the Frisian club last season. In 26 league games, the captain scored three goals and one assist. He previously played for Almere City, Roda JC, Excelsior and Zulte Waregem.
