Feyenoord sign Malaga defender Joris Mathijsen

Feyenoord have swooped for Malaga defender Joris Mathijsen.

The Dutch defender has joined on a three-year deal.

Technical director Martin van Geel told the club's official website: 'We have a squad that is bursting with talent, but after the departures of players like Ron Vlaar and Karim El Ahmadi we clearly needed a very experienced player, who could bring calmness, confidence and leadership in important moments on the pitch and in the dressing room.

"With Joris we have signed such a player and one we - the staff and the board - are very content with."
