Delano Burgzorg will be joining FSV Mainz 05 immediately. The details on the reported transfer actually bring the 23-year-old to the Pfalz on a six-month-loan. Transfermarkt.de reports that the Rheinhessen, who via sporting director Martin Schmidt have admitted that the Heracles Almelo attacker was part of their squad planning for next season, have secured a €2.5 million purchase clause.
"Delano was part of our planning for the coming summer," Schmidt said in a statement, "When it turned out that he could join us this January, we seized upon the opportunity."
"Delano is a very fast player who is great in direct duels," Nullfünfter trainer Bo Svensson added in his own statement, "and still has a lot of developmental potential with his young years."
