Alan Pardew believes he’s overseeing a revolution at ADO Den Haag.
Some of the English manager’s comments have caused amusement in the Dutch media, and it’s been made clear on at least one occasion that Pardew is rather fond of himself.
Part of the ADO revolution has been bringing in English footballers, to help Pardew implement his vision in the Netherlands.
One of the men targeted has been Mark Duffy, who has been on loan at Stoke City from Sheffield United for the first half of the season.
That loan move has been cut short, with Duffy not getting the playing time he wanted, and instead he’ll be heading to the Eredivisie to sign for Pardew’s side.
Voetbal International report the move as done, and it’s explained Pardew announced it during his press conference on Friday.
Duffy’s contract with Sheffield United expires in the summer, so this move brings an end to his time with the Yorkshire club.
