Speaking to the press ahead of Netherlands first friendly of 2016, Danny Blind heaped praise on the 24-year-old, stating he was an example for other young players in the squad.

Blind said, “If you’re talking about young players making steps, then Promes I think at the moment is the best example.”

“I think he played really fantastic before the winter (break). He did so at a high level and in a good league, which really is played at pace.”

“He has scoring ability, depth in his game and can easily bring in the required pace. I think he is an interesting player who is going through a very positive development,”

Promes currently has six caps for the Dutch national team.
