Denis Mahmudov moves to Excelsior


The great performances in the Dutch second league earned Mahmudov a transfer to a top flight club in the Netherlands.

28-year-old attacker Denis Mahmudov had a great season playing for Dordrecht in the Dutch second league. He scored 18 goals (including 3 in the play-offs) and recorded 4 assist making him one of the most valuable players in the league.

With his new club Excelsior he signed a two-year deal. It will be his second chance to prove his qualities in the Dutch best league as previously he made only 6 appearances while playing for Zwolle back in the 2013/14 season and managed to score one goal. Now, much more experienced, Mahmudov is expected to help Excelsior end higher than this season’s 11th place.

The Veles born has never been capped for the senior national team of Macedonia, but a good form in the Dutch top flight can force coach Igor Angelovski to give him a chance. Mahmudov started his career in the Netherlands and has played for various clubs including AGOVV, Wezep, Ezcelsior ’31, Zwolle, Sparta, Telstar and most recently Dordrecht. The only time he played outside the Netherlands was a six months spell at Bulgarian side Levski and Armenian side Banants.
