Sunderland goalkeeper on verge of PSV Eindhoven transfer

Out-of-contract Sunderland goalkeeper Robbin Ruiter is set for a move to PSV Eindhoven.

The 32-year-old was released by the Black Cats at the end of the season and has been weighing up his options, as per a report by the Shields Gazette.

PSV, who have Champions League qualifiers next month, are looking for cover in the goalkeeping department and could snap up the experienced shot stopper.

Ruiter joined Sunderland in August 2017 on a free transfer following a successful trial but has mainly been used as their number two. He made 21 appearances in all competitions during his first season at the club as they were relegated from the Championship.

The Dutch ‘keeper then played just seven games in the last campaign, with only one appearance coming in the league due to the form of Sunderland’s first choice Jon McLaughlin.

Jack Ross’ side opted against giving Ruiter a new deal following their Play-Off final defeat to Charlton Athletic.

Ruiter could now be on his way back to the Eredivisie with PSV. He started his career in Holland with FC Voledam and went onto become their number one in the second tier.

The Amsterdam-born stopper was then signed by FC Utrecht in 2012 and spent five years with them, playing just under 150 games.

Ruiter knows the Dutch top flight well and could turn out to be a shrewd signing for PSV as he waves goodbye to the North-East of England.
