On Thursday, Orange International had already left for Italy for a medical examination. A few days ago, the transfer appeared to be on hold when the Italians made a bid of €11m. Eindhoven rejected Inter, but the deal expired on Saturday.
“Nice move for Denzel,” PSV Director of Football John de Jong said of the 25-year-old. “At the end of last season we made clear agreements together to give him space to move on. Denzel has developed excellently at Eindhoven in recent years and has always been professional and loyal to the club. This deserves recognition.”
PSV have already brought in a new right-back with Philippe Moeny. He appears to be losing the competition to Jordan Teese, who played in central defense last season. In his old position, Andre Ramalho is the undisputed number one. Tese can also play as a right-back and does a better job than Mweeney in this position.
With Dumfries, after Doniel Malin (Borussia Dortmund), the second tastemaker is gone last season. Eindhoven also saw the departure of Pablo Rosario for Nice. Transfer balance is very profitable at the moment. The sale of the trio generated €56m for PSV, while €7m was spent on five new players.
Eindhoven has not yet entered the market. The club wants at least a second striker and a replacement for their defensive midfielder, Rosario. Coach Roger Schmidt believes there are more players to come now that the club has already secured at least the group stage of the Europa League.
