Telstar and Tuur Houben (23) have agreed on the direct transition from MVV to Telstar. The Belgian player signed a one-season contract with Telstar with an option for a second season.
Technical director Piet Buter and his intended successor Sjaak Lettinga will be delighted after the signing. "Tuur is a well-known player to us. Of course, we have often seen him play and when this opportunity arose, we took it. In the conversations with Tuur we got a good picture of him as a person and as a player of course. Tuur is technically very skilled, physically light but this makes him difficult to defend" says Piet Buter.
The 23-year-old Houben is now a familiar face in the Kitchen Champion Division. In 2016 he switched from the Belgian OH Leuven to MVV Maastricht. The last two seasons he became a basic force and played more than 60 games with "the starbearers".
