Milano Koenders joins Sparta on loan from AZ Alkmaar
Sparta Rotterdam have signed defender Milano Koenders on loan from Eredivisie rivals AZ Alkmaar for the rest of the season.
The 23-year-old began his career with Ajax but did not make a league appearance for the Amsterdam giants and left to join RKC Waalwijk in 2006.
He then moved on to AZ a year later and has had a previous loan spell with NEC Nijmegen.
Koenders, who could make his Sparta debut against NEC on Saturday, has 60 Eredivisie appearances to his name and two goals.
