As we reported some weeks ago now, Ferrie Bodde has completed his 50,000 transfer from Den Haag.
The transfer was then confirmed officially by Ado Den Haag this evening.
The Official Announcement Translated:
|''ADO Den Haag have come to an agreement over the transfer of Ferrie Bodde . He still had till 2009 to run on his contract. Bodde made his first appearance for den haag on the 21st April 2001 against FC Zwolle. The 25 year old made 161 competitive appearances for the club with 11 goals'|
|"I came to watch the Blackpool game and I had goose bumps during the build up to kick-off.|
"With nearly 20,000 there the atmosphere was fantastic; very passionate, especially when the teams ran out. The noise was unbelievable.
"It was a new experience for me. Out in Holland it's not often you play to a full stadium; it's more like 5,000 to 10,000.
"Most players in Holland would love to play in the English Leagues and I'm fortunate that my dream has come true. I really want to play well for Swansea and go on to play at a higher level with them.''
"I like to pass the ball and play football the way it was meant to be played, but I also like a battle. And I'd like to think I play for the team rather than just myself.
"Roberto spoke to me a lot before I came over to sign. He told me the way he wants me to play and I like what he said.
"He gave me a good feeling and it's important for a player to get that trust from a coach or manager.
"It was another major factor in my decision to sign for Swansea. It's going to be a big adventure for me and my family to leave Holland, but one we are looking forward to. I just can't wait to get going.
