Thomas Bruns (born 7 January 1992, Wierden) is a Dutch football who currently plays as a central midfielder for Eredivisie club Heracles Almelo.[1]

Club career[edit]

Heracles Almelo[edit]

A product of the Twente academy, Bruns left the Enschede-based side in 2011 to join fellow Eredivisie side Heracles Almelo.[2] A couple of months after joining the club, Bruns finally made his debut on 9 April 2011, in Heracles' 6–2 away victory against Willem II, replacing Everton in the 79th minute.[3] The following season, Bruns scored his first league goal for Heracles, in their 4–2 home defeat against Heerenveen.[4] After a couple of seasons at the club, Bruns finally became a regular in the starting eleven, during Heracles' 2014–15 campaign, making twenty-nine starts and netting seven times.[5]

On 10 April 2017, it was announced that Bruns would join Vitesse on a free transfer, at the end of the 2016–17 campaign upon the expiry of his current contract at Heracles.[6]
