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]

Career[edit]

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.

Excelsior[edit]

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.

Feyenoord[edit]

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]
