Netherlands wicket-keeper Wesley Barresi has made a controversial switch from Quick Haag to city rivals HBS for the 2018 season.

The 33 year old South African born player has become an increasingly consistent and influential player for the Dutch in recent seasons and played an important role as they won the World Cricket League Championship.

The move is sure to cause waves in the domestic arena, but his new club HBS were clearly delighted to have secured his services.

They wrote on Twitter: "Awesome. An international with his experience and talent can make an important contribution to the further development of our young first team, youth and the club. Welcome."

Barresi has played 28 ODI's and 38 T20I's since 2010.
