Days after swooping for French international David Trezeguet, La Liga newboys Hercules CF have pulled off another coup by signing midfielder Royston Drenthe from Real Madrid. The 23 year old has joined the Alicante outfit on loan till the end of the 2010/11 season.
Rotterdam born Drenthe is a Feyenoord youth product. He rose to prominence after some excellent performances for the Netherlands at the 2007 European Under-21 Championship and was snapped up by Real for €14m.
Drenthe made a total of 38 league appearances for Real in the 07-08 and 08-09 seasons, but played only eight times for Los Merengues last season.
