The tall 27 year old will stay at the Blundell Park club as Mariners boss Paul Groves has given the former Northampton Town striker a week to impress.

He started his English career in 1996 when Yorkshire rivals Barnsley took him from Den Bosch, he only made 8 appearances and in that time was sent to Cobblers on loan.

After his brief spell at Oakwell he moved back to Holland to play for Division Two side Telstar and after notching 20 goals in 2001/02 season the Blades bought Ten Heuvel for a six figure sum. And, after making 9 appearances for the Blades he moved on loan to Bradford City where he played 5 games.

His real only achievement in English football so far is that he came late on as a substitute in Worthington Cup Semi-Final Second Leg against Liverpool at Anfield.
