Michael Higdon: Joined Dutch side NEC Nijmegen on a free transfer

Higdon arrives at NEC on a free transfer after seeing out his contract at Motherwell earlier this summer.

The 29-year-old was the SPL's top goalscorer last season and was also named Scotland player of the year.

A number of clubs in the UK and abroad had been linked with a move for Higdon, but the former Crewe man has decided to move to Holland.

Higdon signed a two-year deal at NEC after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.

"We wanted to have a type of target man," said NEC technical director Carlos Aalbers on the club's website.

"With capturing Michael, that is successful. He's shown to be able to score goals at the highest level."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
