Hull City confirm signing of PSV defender

Hull City have signed Jordy de Wijs from PSV Eindhoven for an undisclosed fee as confirmed by the club website.

The Tigers had a disappointing year last time out as instead of challenging for promotion following their drop into the Sky Bet Championship they had to fight to make sure they didn’t suffer a double relegation like Sunderland. But if Hull want to be at the right end of the table next season, they need to bring in some new players and they are doing exactly that.

De Wijs is now Hull’s fourth signing of the summer after he signed a three-year contract with the club with an option of another year. While he has never played in England, he has already gained plenty of experience in the Netherlands. Most of his appearances have come for PSV reserve side Jong PSV, though he has made for a few appearances for the senior side. He also had an extensive loan spell with Excelsior last season.

Following his move to Hull, he said: “This is a big step for me and I’m happy to be a Hull City player.”

“Playing in England has always been one of my ambitions and this is the right time for me to make this step. I am really excited to be here and I want to give everything for this team.”

De Wijs will next be in action against Rochdale on the 21st July. Their first match of the Championship season will be against Aston Villa.
