Hull City Sign Dutch Defender de Wijs

Hull City are delighted to confirm a third signing in as many days with Dutch defender Jordy de Wijs joining from PSV Eindhoven for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old centre back has signed a three-year deal, with an additional one-year option held by the Club, and becomes the Tigers’ fourth signing so far this summer as he follows in the footsteps of Eric Lichaj, David Milinkovic and Reece Burke.

Speaking after putting pen to paper, de Wijs 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 graduated through the PSV academy and made his senior debut in a Champions League tie against Wolfsburg in 2015. A former Dutch youth international, representing his country up to U21 level, de Wijs has spent the last season-and-a-half on loan with Excelsior Rotterdam where he made 34 appearances in the Dutch top flight.
