Heerenveen signing Gartenmann reveals Fulham offer

Denmark U16 defender Stefan Gartenmann has revealed he's chosen SC Heerenveen ahead of Fulham.

The youngster is leaving FC Roskilde.

"I don't mind the competition for places but I felt that Heerenveen were more interested in developing me as a person as opposed to Fulham where I felt like just another name in the bunch," Gartenmann told BT.

"The fact that the road to first-team football is shorter in Heerenveen had a lot of weight to it and their youth setup is also very competitive. So I'll be training with some of the best young talent on a daily basis."
