On 29 May 2014, Gosens' loan was renewed for a further year,[7] and he made his Eredivisie debut on 9 August, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2–1 away win against SC Heerenveen.[8] He scored his first goal in the competition on 20 September, netting his side's only in a 1–1 away draw against Excelsior.[9]

On 4 June 2015, it was announced that Gosens had moved on a free transfer to Heracles Almelo.[10]
