In 2010, Ramselaar made the move from amateur side Roda’46 to Utrecht and five-years later made his first team debut as an 18-year-old in a 0-0 draw with Feyenoord. From that moment he was a regular but the 2015/16 season was his big breakthrough, with Ramselaar scoring eight times and contributing seven assists in an excellent campaign which convinced PSV Eindhoven to fork out around €5 million to take him to the Philips Stadion.  A bargain price in my opinion

Last season was a struggle for PSV as they finished third, but Ramselaar’s performances were a bright spark, with the 21-year-old scoring seven times in 35 matches. He also made his debut for the Dutch national team in November 2016 against Belgium in a 1-1 draw in Amsterdam. He currently has three caps for Oranje.

Style of play

Ramselaar is an attacking midfielder who excels in the number 10 position, but can also play deeper or out wide. He is always a threat and is a very intelligent player with timed runs into the opponent’s 18 yard box or hugging the touching line and making a darting run to attack.

He is a fine dribbler on the ball, with good vision and an eye for goal.

What to expect from Ramselaar this season

I fully expect Bart Ramselaar to push on this season and become the driving force from PSV Eindhoven’s midfield in terms of regular goals and assists. PSV have lost Davy Propper to Brighton and Ramselaar will look to take his place and drive them to a title challenge. He will also be looking to keep his place in the Dutch national team as the World Cup qualifiers continue.
