CONFIRMED: Brad Jones leaving NEC

The Dutch outfit have conceded they cannot compete with the offers Jones is receiving from a number of other clubs

NEC Nijmegen have confirmed Brad Jones will leave the Eredivisie club with the former Socceroos goalkeeper a wanted man after a strong stint in Netherlands.

Jones joined NEC in January and made 17 league starts for the club as they finished 10th in their return to the Dutch top tier.

The Australian gloveman conceded 23 goals in his time at NEC and kept four clean sheets.

The short-term contract has seemingly revitalised Jones' career, with the 34-year-old not having played as many games in a season since 2009-10 when he made 24 league appearances for Middlesbrough in the Championship.

"We really wanted to retain Brad, but it does not appear that he stays," NEC technical director Danny Hoekman told Voetbal International.

"He has a lot of opportunities in the market and has let us know that he wants to make use of them."

Jones hasn't played for Australia since 2014.
