Kelvin ended his eight-year spell at Feyenoord in 2013 when he joined Vitesse on a free transfer. The Suriname-born defender, who accumulated 21 caps for the Netherlands at U21 level, joined the Rotterdam side as a teenager in 2005 after having played for USV Elinkwijk since the age of 10.
While appearing 113 times for the De Kuip club, Leerdam chose to seek pastures new two years ago, before moving to Gelderland. Since that day, the 25-year-old has appeared 59 times for Peter Bosz’s side and he has seen his position regularly alternate between full-back and centre-defensive midfielder, depending on the occasion. The move has also seen his goal-to-game ratio drastically improve, with 11 goals in the last three seasons, after scoring just four for Feyenoord.
