Fee: undisclosed
Contract: Jun 2015



Eredivisie giants PSV have confirmed the transfer of youngster Georginio Wijnaldum from Feyenoord for a fee believed to be in the region of €5 million. The 20-year-old has signed a contract until the summer of 2015 with the Eindhoven outfit.

Both sides have been involved in talks over the transfer of the Netherlands under-21 star and wrapped up the final details of the move on Sunday evening, with Wijnaldum undergoing a medical at the weekend.

"This is pretty special for me. I'm still a young player and I'm keen to continue developing into a better player. That's why staying in the Netherlands was in my best interest. PSV always play for the Eredivisie title and that's new for me," he said on the PSV website.

Wijnaldum's contract with Feyenoord ran until the summer of 2012 and the club decided to cash in on the player when he revealed his desire to move elsewhere. He made 110 Eredivisie appearances for the Rotterdam side, scoring 22 goals in the process.

The promising midfielder is PSV's third signing within 48 hours, after the previous captures of Utrecht duo Dries Mertens and Kevin Strootman on Sunday.
