Dutch midfielder Hedwiges Maduro has signed a two-and-a-half year deal to join PAOK from Sevilla, the Greek Super League club announced on Monday.

The 28-year-old, who moves for an undisclosed fee, has played 22 times for the Netherlands, mostly as a defensive midfielder.

Having started his career at Ajax, where he won two Dutch Cups, he moved on to Valencia in 2008, winning the Spanish Cup that same year, and then transferred to Sevilla four years later.

He made his international debut in a World Cup qualifier against Romania in 2005 and he was part of the Oranje World Cup squad the next year, although he saw only four minutes of action at the finals in Germany.
