Guyon Fernandez (born 18 April 1986) is a Dutch professional footballer who plays as a forward. He formerly played for ADO Den Haag, Excelsior, Feyenoord, PEC Zwolle and NAC Breda.[1][2]


ADO Den Haag[edit]

Fernandez started his professional career with ADO Den Haag in the Dutch Eerste Divisie. He played 11 matches in his first season in which he scored once.


In his first season in the Eredivisie, while playing for Excelsior, Fernandez was praised for performance in a victory against local rivals Feyenoord, in which he scored two goals.[3] In March 2011 Fernandez was the subject of interest from Romanian side Steaua Bucharest.,[4] but this did not lead to a transfer.


In May 2011, it was announced that Fernandez had signed for Feyenoord at the start of the 2011-12 season.[5] He was supposed to succeed Luc Castaignos who had left to Internazionale. In his first season Fernandez stood in a negative way. In November 2011, he received a six-game ban for hitting opposition player Rens van Eijden.[6] Fernandez claimed he was reacting to racist abuse from van Eijden.[7]

Loan spell PEC Zwolle[edit]

Fernandez was sent on loan for the 2013-14 season, after a lack of prospect with Feyenoord. On 20 April 2014, Fernandez scored twice in the first half as PEC Zwolle beat Ajax 5–1 in the KNVB Cup.[8] Although Fernandez impressed during his loan spell, he did not sign with the Zwolle side and left Feyenoord as a free agent.

NAC Breda[edit]

In October 2014 Fernandez was linked with a transfer to Bulgarian club Levski Sofia, following trials in Saudi Arabia and with Spanish club Real Valladolid.[9] In November 2014, he began training with former club Excelsior.[10] In January 2015 he went on trial with English club Sheffield Wednesday.[11] On 12 January 2015, it was announced that Fernandez had signed a deal with NAC Breda until the end of the season.[12]
