Kevin van Veen returns!

2 January 2019

Scunthorpe United is delighted to announce striker Kevin van Veen has rejoined the club from Northampton Town.

The Dutchman arrives back at Glanford Park on a two-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee after departing the side just under 12 months ago.

Now 27, the frontman played in the second division of Dutch football, otherwise known as the Eerste Divisie, and notched 16 goals in 20 games for Oss prior to United bringing him to England in January 2015. 

While with the Iron, he scored 23 goals in 116 appearances over a three-year spell, including some spectacular solo efforts against the likes of Swindon Town, Oldham Athletic and Fleetwood Town.

Van Veen departed the club for an undisclosed fee at the end of January 2018, signing for League One rivals Northampton Town. He made ten appearances for the Cobblers towards the end of the season, but couldn’t prevent the side from relegation to League Two. 

He’s enjoyed a successful campaign so far though, scoring ten goals in 28 appearances in all competitions.
