UEFA Champions League group stage contenders RSC Anderlecht have signed experienced midfielder Demy de Zeeuw from FC Spartak Moskva.
The 30-year-old, who made three starts during a loan spell at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadion last season, joins on a free transfer, ending a two-year association with Spartak. The former Go Ahead Eagles player initially made his name with AZ Alkmaar, amassing 119 league appearances and winning the Eredivisie at the end of his fourth and final season at the club.
He left for AFC Ajax in 2009 and lifted a second Dutch title two years later. Capped 27 times, De Zeeuw was a member of the Netherlands squad that finished runners-up at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Meanwhile, Spartak have also allowed Argentinian defender Nicolas Pareja to leave for Sevilla FC on loan, while forward Artem Dzyuba and playmaker Jano Ananidze have both signed season-long loan deals with Russian Premier League rivals FC Rostov.
