Will Zinho Vanheusden (23) return to Sclessin? At Standard, they are investigating the possibility of hiring their former captain at Inter Milan, which is now loaning him to AZ Alkmaar. Vanheusden himself sees a return, but whether AZ is willing to cooperate is another matter.

Vanheusden has been playing on a rental basis for AZ since last summer, which is currently in fifth place in the Dutch Eredivisie. The Hasselaar did not get much playing time there due to circumstances. At the start of his loan, the central defender was still struggling with the after-effects of a hamstring injury and when he started making minutes in dribs and drabs, he broke his foot in his third game as a substitute after a duel with Bas Dost (FC Utrecht).


Last weekend, Vanheusden appeared in the selection for the first time, but he has not made any official playing minutes in 2023 for the time being. Standard therefore sensed his chance and contacted Vanheusden’s entourage a few days ago to find out whether a return to the old nest is possible. is possible.

Vanheusden himself is not reluctant to do so, but Inter Milan and AZ must also be willing to cooperate. However, the chance that the Dutch club wants to terminate its lease with a purchase option of 10 million euros early is extremely small. This is confirmed to us by sources close to the Dutch club. Due to the injury of Bruno Martins Indi, AZ is counting on Vanheusden to make an appearance in the Alkmaar defense in the coming weeks. The chance that Vanheusden will get his chance at AZ in the short term is therefore greater than the chance that the Alkmaarders will let him go in this winter mercato. Unless there is a hefty fee in return, but that is precisely the big problem with Standard.
