Heerenveen sign Liverpool target

The 22-year-old has recently been strongly linked with the likes of Liverpool, Ajax and Juventus.

Nordfeldt joins Heerenveen on a free transfer as his contract with Swedish side Brommapojkarna expired in January.

The highly-rated youngster has signed a contract that will keep him at Heerenveen until the summer of 2015.

Nordfeldt told SC Heerenveen TV: “I think it’s a fantastic club. When I got here yesterday (Monday) for the first time, I immediately got a good impression.

“The facilities and opportunities for the players are good. It looks good.

“The club has faith in me, but I will have to prove that I am the first-choice goalkeeper.

“I am strong in the air, have a good response and my footwork is good. But I’m still young and want to improve in everything.”
