Hull City linked with a move for PSV Eindhoven defender Jordy de Wijs

Hull City have shown an interest in signing PSV Eindhoven defender Jordy de Wijs, according to reports in the Netherlands.

Dutch football news outlet Voetball International are reporting the Tigers are keeping tabs on the 23-year-old, who impressed during a loan spell at Eredivisie outfit Excelsior last season.

Although the centre-back has made just one senior appearances for PSV, he has been a regular for the club’s youth side throughout his career, who plays their football in the Dutch second tier as well as making frequent appearances for the Netherlands’ international youth sides.

According to the report, City do face competition for de Wijs’ signature, though, with Italian club Perugia also showing an interest, but the defender favours a move to the Championship.

De Wijs appears unlikely to threaten for a first-team spot at the Philips Stadion and with one-year left on this contract he could be allowed to leave PSV this summer in order to develop his career.

The Tigers returned to pre-season training last week with just four senior defenders in the first-team squad having seen three defenders reject the chance to stay at the KCOM Stadium this summer – Max Clark, Michael Dawson and Moses Odubajo. While the departures of Ola Aina, Michael Hector and Fikayo Tomori, who return to parent club Chelsea, only accentuates the problem.

Therefore, with just Angus MacDonald and Ondrej Mazuch at Nigel Adkins’ disposal, de Wijs would no doubt be a welcome addition as the Tigers continue their preparations for the new season.
