Marvin Romeo Kwasie Zeegelaar (born 12 August 1990) is a Dutch professional footballer who plays for English club Watford as a left back or a left midfielder.

Club career

Born in Amsterdam of Surinamese descent, Zeegelaar finished his formation with local AFC Ajax. He made his competitive debut on 12 November 2008, coming on as a substitute for Siem de Jong in a match against FC Volendam for the KNVB Cup.[1]

In the 2011 January transfer window, Zeegelaar was loaned to fellow Eredivisie club SBV Excelsior, appearing regularly and helping his team avoid relegation in the playoffs. In the summer, he signed a four-year contract with RCD Espanyol in Spain, being assigned to the B-team.[2]

In 2012, Zeegelaar joined Süper Lig side Elazığspor. In September of the following year, he moved to Blackpool in the Championship on loan.[3]

In the summer of 2014, Zeegelaar signed a two-year contract with Rio Ave F.C. from the Portuguese Primeira Liga. He made his debut in the competition on 21 September, playing the second half of the 1–2 home loss to F.C. Arouca;[4] he finished his first season with 25 games and one goal,[5] helping to a final tenth position.

With only six months to go before he became a free agent, Rio Ave accepted Sporting Clube de Portugal's bid of 400.000 in November 2015, and Zeegelaar penned a three-and-a-half-year deal which became effective in the following transfer window.[6][7] In his only full season, he appeared in 26 games across all competitions to help to a final third position, battling for position with Brazilian Jefferson Nascimento.[8][9]

On 31 August 2017, Watford signed Zeegelaar on a four-year contract.[10]

International career

In November 2016, 26-year-old Zeegelaar received his first call-up to the senior Netherlands squad, for matches against Belgium and Luxembourg.[11]
