Dundee will be hoping it’s third time lucky for the club’s recent Dutch signings after sealing a deal for winger Randy Wolters.
Snapped up on a free transfer after leaving Eredivisie club ADO Den Haag, Wolters has put pen to paper on a two-year deal at Dens Park.
Dundee manager Neil McCann has added the wide midfielder to his list of new recruits after bringing in Scott Allan, Roarie Deacon and Lewis Spence this summer.
However, Dark Blues fans will be hoping Wolters makes more of an impact than the last two Dutch imports, Yordi Teijsse and Marc Klok.
Between the two of them, Teijsse and Klok made just 10 league appearances for the club as both left after short-lived spells.
Signed from amateur side Quick Boys, Teijsse was seen as a rough diamond by then-manager Paul Hartley but it was plain to see it would take a lot of work to get him ready to play professionally, never mind in the Scottish top flight.
He did score early on in his Dens career in a hammering of Forfar in the League Cup but, sadly for the player, that was his only highlight at Dens before heading to German fourth-flight side Wuppertaler.
Klok’s spell was even shorter — two substitute appearances was all the former Ross County player managed before heading out to Indonesia to play for PSM Makassar.
Those two didn’t exactly set the bar high for new boy Wolters to beat but what do we know about him?
The 27-year-old came through the youth system at FC Utrecht, making his way into the first team in the Dutch top flight and scoring on his debut in a 4-1 home loss to VVV-Venlo.
He went on to make eight appearances for Utrecht before moving to FC Emmen in the second tier.
Wolters stayed in the Jupiler league before finally getting back to the top flight with Go Ahead Eagles last campaign and spending the second half of the season at mid-table ADO Den Haag on loan.
At the beginning of the 2015/16 season, Go Ahead had qualified for the Europa League despite being in the second tier thanks to Uefa’s Fair Play rule.
Wolters played both legs of their qualifier against Hungarians Ferencvaros but they were knocked out 5-2 on aggregate.
They did, though, find their way to promotion through the play-offs after finishing fifth.
Wolters was a regular in that season for Go Ahead in the top flight, mainly on the left wing, before heading to Den Haag in January where he was mainly used off the bench but helped them to a 10th-place finish, scoring once.
Go Ahead, meanwhile, finished bottom. Oddly enough, also in that team was Yordi Teijsse’s twin brother Kenny — he’s since moved to play in the USA — while Henrik Ojamaa, who arrived on loan at Dens Park in January, is reporting back to Go Ahead for pre-season this summer.
Wolters has played the vast majority of his career on the left-wing but has been found on the right in a handful of appearances.
He’s played centre-forward and attacking midfield but is very much a left-sided wide player.
Among the history of Dutch players at Dens, there isn’t much happy reading.
The previous Dark Blue Dutchman was Khalid Hamdaoui, signed by Alex Rae in 2007 but only playing four league games in 18 months.
Before that, Dyron Daal came to Dens on loan from Aberdeen in 2007 and rattled in five goals in his first four matches in the First Division.
Going further back, there’s Frank van Eijs in 1999/00 and Ivo Den Bieman in 1992/93.
