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."
