European ace agrees Owls deal

25 June 2015

Sheffield Wednesday have agreed a deal to sign coveted Dutchman Darryl Lachman for an undisclosed fee.

The FC Twente centre half will pen a two-year contract at Hillsborough.

Lachman, a composed, ball-playing defender, brings a fine pedigree to S6 having started his career in the Netherlands with European giants Ajax.

He moved on firstly to Dutch outfit FC Groningen and then PEC Zwolle, for whom Lachman was part of the successful side that won the Eerste Divisie title in 2011/12.

PEC Zwolle then picked up their first major silverware by lifting the KNVB Cup, beating, ironically, Ajax 5-1 and earning a maiden foray into the Europa League.

The 25-year-old switched to FC Twente in 2014 and joins the Owls after since attracting the interest of a string of clubs in England.

Lachman has also earned recognition on the international stage with Curacao, for whom he has stored four caps to date.
