After notching a massive 29 goals in 32 appearances last season for Heerenveen, Icelandic hitman Alfred Finnbogason has clinched a move to the La Liga and Real Sociedad.
The talks between the two clubs have been ongoing throughout the summer, and after an unconfirmed £10m bid from Fulham rejected in the winter, Heerenveen accepted a much lower reported €8m bid from the Basque side. A further €2.5m made be paid out based on future performances from the player.
Finnbogason having passed a medical in San Sebastian this morning, put pen to paper on a four year deal, with an official presentation to be held later this week.
The striker finished top scorer in the Eredivisie last season and has been a revelation in the Dutch top flight over the last two campaigns netting a total of 59 goals.
Finnbogason’s depature leaves a massive hole for the Friezen club and new manager Dwight Lodeweges will have a huge task ahead replacing the Iceland international.
Real Sociedad released the video below to announce the deal.
