AFC Bournemouth striker Frank Demouge is set to make the move back to Holland agreeing a loan switch with Roda JC.
6ft 3in Demouge, came through the youth system at Nijmegen Eendracht Combinatie, before moving on to FC Eindhoven, FC Den Bosch and Willem II Tilburg before moving to Eredivisie side FC Utrecht in August 2010, initially on loan before making the move during that summer.
He scored 8 goals in 26 appearances during his first season with Utrecht, including one goal against Napoli in the UEFA Europa League.
During his final season in Eredivisie he scored 7 goals in 23 appearances, with five of those goals coming in his final four appearances of the season.
Demouge was reportedly recommended to former Cherries manager Paul Groves by Cherries Russian co-owner Maxim Demin and in June 2012 he agreed a two year deal to move to England.
He made one appearance in pre-season, but a knee injury meant that he missed the first two months of the season and didn't make his debut for the club until the end of September when he played the full 90 minutes in the Cherries 2-1 home defeat to Walsall.
He went on to play a further eleven minutes against Crawley but had to be stretchered off with a head injury.
That proved to be Paul Groves final game in charge and Demouge is yet to make another appearance.
Demouge was recently linked with a loan move to League Two side Aldershot Town and Dutch sides Willem II and NEC.
Cherries manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo...
"We have quality players in that position and Frank has found it difficult to get a chance to stake his claim. Due to the form of those players, he has been short of match time...'
'...Our preference was to see him in England because that is the only way we are going to develop his game and get it suited to the English style. We know he can play in the Dutch league but it is very different over here.
"But his preference was Holland and we could understand that, so he goes with our best wishes."
