The versatile attacker will leave NEC for an Australian adventure...

Australian outfit Melbourne Heart have completed the transfer of versatile Dutch attacker Rutger Worm from NEC on a free transfer. The forward has an expiring contract at his current employer.

Melbourne Heart coach John van't Schip is building on a new team to enter the A-League next season and saw the 24-year-old Worm as a valuable addition to his squad. Worm will sign a two-year contract at the Melbourne outfit.

"I'm really looking forward to my transfer. I expect it to be an amazing experience. I wanted a new challenge and Australia is a beautiful country. They are really interested in sports and that is important for me," Worm said to De Gelderlander.

Worm is a product of the NEC youth academy and has made well over 100 league appearances for the Eredivisie side since making his official debut back in 2004-05.
