Five things to know about Hull City target Jordy de Wijs

Hull City are being linked with a move for PSV defender Jordy de Wijs, as reported by The72 earlier today. Here are five things to know about the Tigers’ target-

Born in Belgium- Jordy de Wijs was born in Kortrijk in Belgium but represents the Netherlands. He has played for them at Under-17, Under-18, Under-19 and Under-21 level. His last cap for the Under-21’s came in 2015.

Comes from a footballing family- de Wijs father Edwin is a former professional footballer whereas his grandfather, Hans van der Pluijm, played over 300 games for FC Den Bosch in his career and is currently the manager of Tanzanian side Singida United.

Regular for Jong PSV- He has mainly been used in PSV’s reserve team Jong PSV and was a regular for them from 2014 to 2017. de Wijs played 65 games for them in the Eerste Divisie, which is the second tier in the Netherlands, and scored 6 goals from defence.

Excelsior loan spells- de Wijs has gained plenty of game time during two loan spells at Excelsior, with his most recent stint coming last season on a season-long loan. He impessed for them in the Eredivisie in the last campaign and got a taste of action at a decent level.

Looking for fresh challenge- His long-term chances at PSV look limited and now at the age of 23, de Wijs is looking to move to a club who can offer him some stability and game time. Hull City in the Championship would be a great option for him and a move that could turn his head.
