Official: Hertha sign Deyovaisio Zeefuik from Groningen

Hertha BSC have announced the signing of right-back Deyovaisio Zeefuik from FC Groningen.

The highly-rated Dutch youth international has signed a long-term deal with Bundesliga side Hertha.

According to reports, Hertha are paying €4m for Zeefuik, 22, with Groningen including a sell-on clause.

Zeefuik’s protracted move to Hertha comes after talks hit a standstill over a price.

The player himself spoke publicly about wanting to join Hertha and the clubs finally agreed terms.

Southampton were also interested in Zeefuik as a replacement for Cedric Soares who joined Arsenal.

Zeefuik follows Alexander Schwolow into the Berlin club after the goalkeeper joined from Freiburg on Tuesday for a €7.2m fee.

In his first interview with Hertha, Zeefuik said he was very happy to finally get his move.

“Hertha BSC demonstrated a clear plan in my talks with the club and showed a lot of interest,” he said. “This club’s ambition corresponds to my own, so I’m very happy to be coming to Berlin.”

Zeefuik made a total of 73 appearances for Groningen after joining them from Ajax in 2018.
