A tough-tackling defensive midfielder, Van den Berg received a record-equaling 7th Eredivisie red card in March 2016.[3]

Reading[edit]

On 28 June 2016, it was announced that Reading would sign Van den Berg on a two-year contract after his current deal expired at SC Heerenveen and when the transfer window officially opened on 1 July 2016.[4] He scored his first goal for Reading in a 2–0 EFL Cup win against Plymouth Argyle on 9 August 2016.[5] On 27 September 2017, van den Berg extended his contract with Reading until the summer of 2019.[6]

On 25 July 2018, van den Berg joined NEC in the Dutch Eerste Divisie on a season-long loan deal.[7]

He was released by Reading at the end of the 2018–19 season.[8]
