Former Holland wonderkid Royston Drenthe has joined the 12th club of his nomadic career after being unveiled by Spanish minnows Racing Murcia.

The former Real Madrid and Everton winger is set to be presented on Thursday after making the shock move to the Spanish lower leagues. 

The 33-year-old’s move from Dutch second division side Kozakken Boys to the third division in Spain comes just a month after he was declared bankrupt by a court in Holland.

Drenthe was on the books at Real Madrid for five years and spent a season on loan at Everton

Drenthe spoke to Dutch site voetbalzone following the verdict, but insisted that he expects the decision will not be final, explaining that his lawyer was on holiday when the verdict was handed down.  

‘I don’t know the ins and outs and I don’t know exactly what’s going on, but if this is what I think it is, it’s not that important,’ he told the website.

‘I’m always under a magnifying glass, but it will be resolved as it should.’

Drenthe has previously stated that he last lost £3.2million after his glittering career in football simmered out.

Beginning his senior career with Feyenoord, he earned a move to Real Madrid off the back of his displays at the Under-21 European Championships in 2007, where he was named the player of the tournament as the Dutch lifted the trophy. 

Drenthe shocked football fans after showing off a clip of himself in a crime drama in March 

While enjoying some success at the Bernabeu, he failed to hold down a regular berth and spent time away on loan, including a stint with Everton in the Premier League.

Also appearing for Reading later in his career, Drenthe announced he had quit football in 2016 to pursue a career in music, and launched a career under the moniker Roya2Faces. 

He has also attempted to break into acting, appearing in TV crime drama Mocro Maffia in March this year. 

He returned to football in 2018 with Sparta Rotterdam, before moving to Kozakken Boys in the Dutch third tier.
