Smeets, 25, is a defensive midfielder and has spent his entire career playing in The Netherlands. He came through Roda JC’s academy, making his way through the youth ranks before making a move to Fortuna Sittard in the summer of 2016.

With Fortuna, Smeets has played in 107 games across all competitions. Along the way, he has managed to notch up four goals and eight assists. He has captained the side on multiple occasions this season, displaying leadership traits that could come of use to Rotherham United in the Championship.

It awaits to be seen if a rumoured move to Rotherham materialises for Smeets this summer. He has options in Germany, but he could opt to test himself in the Championship with a move on the cards this summer.
