Club career

Jodan Boys

Born in The Hague and after youth spells with Wilhelmus, Feyenoord and ADO Den Haag, Verheydt joined Topklasse side Jodan Boys in 2012, [2] making his debut during their 2–1 victory over IJsselmeervogels, in which he scored in the 39th minute. [3] A week later, Verheydt continued his impressive form with a goal during Jodan Boys' 5–3 away triumph against Noordwijk. [4] During October 2012, Verheydt suffered a long-term injury which ruled him out until April 2013. By the end of the 2012–13 campaign, Verheydt had registered fifteen league appearances, netting seven times.

IJsselmeervogels

Following an impressive campaign with Jodan Boys, Verheydt opted to join fellow Topklasse side IJsselmeervogels in July 2013. [2] On 24 August 2013, Verheydt made his debut for IJsselmeervogels in their 0–0 draw against Lisse, replacing Nabil El Gourari in the 56th minute. [5] A month later, Verheydt registered his first goal for the club, during IJsselmeervogels' 1–1 home draw with HHC Hardenberg, netting the hosts' equaliser in the 66th minute. [6] Following his first goal for the club, Verheydt went onto net four more times in the month of October during their victories over Ter Leede and Excelsior Maassluis. [2] On 14 December 2013, Verheydt netted his 10th league goal of the season during IJsselmeervogels' reverse fixture against Lisse. [7]

After an impressive debut season with IJsselmeervogels, netting thirteen league goals in twenty-seven appearances, Verheydt registered his first goal of the 2014–15 campaign, during the club's 2–2 draw with HSV Hoek. [8]

MVV

On 5 August 2015, Verheydt joined Eerste Divisie side MVV, following an impressive record with both Jodan Boys and IJsselmeervogels in the Topklasse. [2] On 6 November 2015, Verheydt scored on his MVV Maastricht debut in their 1–0 victory over Jong Ajax, coming on in the 57th minute for Luca Polizzi and netting in the 90th minute. [9] Following his debut campaign in the Eerste Divisie, Verheydt struggled to adapt and only registered twelve starts all season, netting four times. [2] However, during his second season at MVV Maastricht, Verheydt netted thirteen times in all competitions, including eleven league goals and one each in the KNVB Cup and Eerste Divisie play-offs.

Crawley Town

On 6 July 2017, Verheydt opted to join English club Crawley Town on a three-year deal. [10] On 5 August 2017, Verheydt made his Crawley Town debut during their 3–1 home defeat against Port Vale, featuring for the entire 90 minutes. [11]

Go Ahead Eagles

On 16 July 2018, following a year in England, Verheydt returned to the Netherlands to join Go Ahead Eagles on a two-year deal with the option of an additional year. [12] With Verheydt as their regular striker, Go Ahead Eagles reached the finals of the play-offs for promotion. However, they lost in a shootout against RKC Waalwijk (5–4), who were promoted at the expense of the team from Deventer. [13] He finished the season with 35 appearances in which he scored 13 goals. [2]

Almere City

On 18 July 2019, Almere City announced that Verheydt had joined the club on a two-year contract. [14] He made his debut for the club on 9 August in a 1–1 away draw against Roda JC Kerkrade. [15] His first goal came the following week in a 3–2 home win over Jong PSV. As a second-half substitute, Verheydt headed home a corner to secure the win for Almere City. [16] He scored 10 goals in 15 competitive appearances in his first season at the club and 20 in 39 in his second, [2] the latter of which broke the club's record for most league goals in a season. [17]

ADO Den Haag

2021–22: Goalscoring form and missed promotion

On 5 August 2021, it was announced that Verheydt had signed a three-year contract with ADO Den Haag, newly relegated to the Eerste Divisie club. [18] [19] This move allowed him to return to his hometown club, which he had been a fan of since childhood. He has also mentioned that during his youth, he frequented the stands of ADO's former home ground, the Zuiderparkstadion. [20]

Three days after signing, he made his debut in the league game against Jong Ajax, replacing Tyrese Asante in the 60th minute. [21] He immediately made an impact, scoring sixteen minutes later to seal the final result; a 2–0 victory. [22] [20] Five days later, on 13 August, he scored his second goal for ADO in the 19th minute of a 3–1 away win over Volendam, after making his first start for De Residentieclub. [23] His goalscoring form continued in the following months, and he scored his first hat-trick of the season on 10 October, helping ADO to a 3–2 home victory against FC Den Bosch in the Eerste Divisie. [24] [25] On 10 and 17 December, he scored consecutive braces, helping ADO secure victories over Jong AZ and NAC Breda. The goals brought his total tally to 16 goals in just 12 league games appearances. [26]

Verheydt's form continued into 2022, with highlights including a hat-trick against VVV-Venlo on 1 April and a brace against Jong PSV on 19 April. [27] [28] Despite scoring 30 goals in 36 regular season league appearances, Verheydt missed out on the award for top goalscorer that season to Thijs Dallinga, who scored two goals more in 37 appearances. [29] [30] ADO also missed out on direct promotion to the Eredivisie, finishing eight points behind second-place Volendam in the Eerste Divisie. [30] In the promotion play-offs, Verheydt netted three goals in four appearances, notably finding the back of the net in the final playoff match against Excelsior on 29 May 2022. ADO had taken a commanding 3–0 lead in that game after a 1–1 draw in the first leg away at the Van Donge & De Roo Stadion. However, ADO encountered challenges, including a red card for Tyrese Asante. [31] The match ended 4–4 after extra time, and Excelsior emerged victorious in the penalty shootout, ultimately extinguishing ADO's hopes of promotion. [32] [33] Verheydt ended the season with 37 goals in 43 appearances, which included league, KNVB Cup, and play-off games. [2]

2022–23: Mixed fortunes

On 23 June 2022, ahead of the 2022–23 season, Verheydt extended his contract with ADO until 2025. [34] The team had a rollercoaster season, during which Verheydt witnessed the dismissal of their new head coach, Dirk Kuyt, in November 2022 due to poor results. [35] Under the guidance of his replacement, Dick Advocaat, the team showed improvement but ultimately finished in 12th place, missing out on a spot in the promotion play-offs by seven points. [36] Despite a decrease in his goal production compared to the previous season, Verheydt continued to demonstrate his prowess in front of the goal, netting 15 times in 36 appearances across competitions. [2]

Çorum

On 6 July 2023, ADO officially announced that Verheydt had departed the club to join Çorum, a recently promoted team in the Turkish TFF First League. [37] He signed a two-year contract with the club. [38] At Çorum, he was reunited with fellow countryman Murat Yıldırım, who not only owned the club but also played for it. [39] [40] On the first matchday of the 2023–24 season, 13 August, Verheydt made a remarkable debut for the team by scoring two goals from the spot, narrowly missing out on a hat-trick. [41] [42]
