Former Dutch international footballer Demy de Zeeuw uses LinkedIn to search for new club

A former Dutch international footballer, Demy de Zeeuw, is using LinkedIn to search for a new team after finding himself clubless.

De Zeeuw has been without a club since 30 November 2013, after completing a loan spell with Anderlecht from Spartak Moscow.

The 31-year-old midfielder made 27 appearances for his nation between 2007 and 2010, including a start in the 2010 World Cup semi-final against Uruguay.

On his profile summary De Zeeuw says: “I played for renowned clubs like AZ Alkmaar, AJAX Amsterdam, Spartak Moscow and RSC Anderlecht. I won three national titles, all different teams.

“I have played 27 international games for The Netherlands: European Championship, FIFA World Cup (semi-final in 2010 South Africa) and 18 Champions League games (three goals).

“I am looking for a new club in Europa, Middle East or MLS. Salary depends on city, club and country. For more information please send me a direct message.”

    I think this is a great idea to get yourself out there and to get publicity. I hope the powers that be at Leeds United have seen this! He sounds like the kind of player we need right now!!

    It's a public profile on LinkedIn so why would he need to give permission? If anything, he's probably pleased that his profile is getting more publicity given he's out of work and looking for a job...

    I'm assuming De Zeeuw gave you permission to publish this story and screen shots from his LinkedIn profile? It feels a bit invasive otherwise???
