‘Cambuur refuses bid from Serie A candidate Lecce, also Eredivisie clubs lurking ‘

Mees Hoedemakers could have exchanged one PhD student for another, but SC Cambuur does not want to cooperate. The Kitchen Champion Division Champion has rejected an offer from the Italian Lecce, reports Football International Monday night.
Over the past two seasons, the 23-year-old Zaandammer has grown into one of the biggest eye-catchers at Cambuur: Hoedemakers was first rented from AZ for one year, then finally made the switch and in 64 Keuk Champion Division Duels made four goals and fourteen assists. According to VI, it could have given him an Italian adventure. Lecce is the number two of Serie B on the verge of promotion and would have wanted to enter Serie A with Hoedemakers.
However, Cambuur is currently keeping the auditors contract: Hoedemakers is still in custody for one year, although Cambuur still has an option to extend that commitment until 2023. The Leeuwarders want to keep their championship team together as much as possible, although it is still a question whether Hoedemakers will stay inboard as well. According to VI, there are also two — not mentioned — EreDivision clubs that follow its operations.
