Kevin Strootman born 13 February 1990 is a Dutch footballer currently playing for Dutch Eredivisie club FC Utrecht. He primarily plays as a left midfielder.
Strootman began his career with VV Rijsoord and signed a youth contract for RJO Sparta Rotterdam in 2007. He was promoted to the senior team in January 2008. His first full season proved to be very successful and he caught the eye of bigger clubs in the Eredivisie. He started well as playmaker of the side in the 2009/2010 season but after a disastrous second half of the season Sparta was relegated. Since Strootman, along with Erik Falkenburg and Nick Viergever, was regarded as one of Sparta's (and Holland's) big talents, signals that he would leave the club were getting stronger. In June 2010, champions FC Twente were expected to sign him but the deal did not materialise. In the January 2011 transferwindow Strootman signed a contract for FC Utrecht in the Dutch Eredivisie.
Kevin Strootman made his international debut in the friendly against Austria on February 9, 2011, replacing Theo Janssen.
