Oskar Buur has a new club after Wolves release

Oskar Buur left Wolves on transfer deadline day, but the full-back has already found a new club.

Buur was one of a few outgoings for Wolves on the final day of the January transfer window.

He was released after mutually terminating his contract, which brought to an end a four-and-a-half-year stint at the club.

Buur spent last season on loan at Grasshoppers, and returned to the club in the summer.

There was to be no involvement for him at first-team level under new manager Bruno Lage though. Buur spent his last months as a Wolves player with the U23s.

The star is now onto pastures new, with Dutch second division outfit FC Volendam confirming his signing yesterday.

He has penned a two-and-a-half-year contract with the club and is excited to get going.

He told Volendam’s official website: “I am very happy to be here in Volendam. It’s a very exciting project here and I can’t wait to be part of this journey.”

The club’s technical director Jasper van Leeuwen is delighted with the capture.

He said of Buur: “It’s no secret that we’ve been interested in Oskar for a long time. Previously, a transition was not yet possible and it was a very positive surprise when it recently turned out that he was completely released.

“Oskar is a skilled and above all intelligent player, who we expect to be comfortable in our style of play and can bring more peace to our positional play. In addition, he has a natural urge to move forward and a good overview in the final phase.”

Good luck Oskar Buur

At his age, it is much better for him to be playing senior football. There was obviously no route to the first-team at Molineux.

Hopefully Buur can have a good experience playing in the second tier of Dutch football.

Volendam are currently five points clear at the top of the league so there is a good chance they will secure promotion to the Eredivise for 2022/23.
