Van Veen “can make something out of nothing”

Kevin Van Veen has been backed to become a hit in England by Dutch journalist Roel Kuilder, after signing a three and a half year deal at Glanford Park.

Kuilder (Weekblad Regio Oss and Kliksport) who has watched the Dutchman’s career progress rapidly in the past couple of seasons, believes the switch to Glanford Park will improve the 23 year olds game even further.

He told Iron-Bru.com: “He’s always defied the odds wherever he has played. Every year he seems to set a new standard for himself.

“He’s a player who can make something out of nothing. Sometimes he looks like he doesn’t care, but in an instant he has a great action.

“He puts defenders to sleep and then strikes hard.”

Van Veen has told Kuilder that he is very excited about moving to England, despite being a fans favourite at his relatively new club FC Oss.

“He told me that he’d love to go to England and is really looking forward to the challenge.

“He’re in Oss he played just five months, but he is very social so everyone loves him”

Kuilder suggests Kevin Van Veen will have no problems in becoming a fans favourite at Glanford Park.

“At the three other clubs before FC Oss, he played one season, but at every club he made the people love him

“In Oss he always had a good connection with the fans.

“He is a very down to earth guy, he knows where he came from.”

The striker also had a part time plastering job whilst playing with the Dutch Jupiter League side, but Kuilder says he has admitted he will use his free time to get fitter to help adapt to the English style of football.

” I asked him if he would plaster in England. but he is going to bulk up in the gym instead!”
