He then moved to FC Den Bosch in 2004, making 32 league appearances, before finally moving to Vitesse after the 2004–05 season.[3] After four years, he left Vitesse Arnhem and signed a two-year contract with FC Augsburg on 27 May 2010.

After having spent seven years with FC Augsburg, Verhaegh switched to VfL Wolfsburg, after agreeing to a two-year deal.[4] In April 2019, it was announced that Verhaegh has been released by the club with immediate effect.[5]

On 5 June 2019, Dutch club FC Twente announced that Verhaegh would sign a one year contract with the club following a medical.[2]
