depchiFollowing great World Cup performances, Memphis Depay has been connected to a handful of big clubs this summer including Juventus, Manchester United, and more recently, Tottenham. However, following the advice of Dutch greats like Ruud Guillit and Louis Van Gaal, Depay has decided to extend his stay in the Eredivisie.

Today, Depay signed a contract extension until 2018, after previously stating he would not sign a new contract until after the transfer window had closed.

His loyalty will mean great things for PSV as they look to take home their first Eredivisie crown in 7 seasons. With Depay, Georginio Wijnaldum, defensive duo Jeffrey Bruma and Karim Rekik, along with exciting young players like Luciano Narsingh, Jurgen Locadia and Jetro Willems, PSV will be real contenders this season.

The likes of Ajax and Feyenoord will be much more fearful of PSV with Depay on the flank. Currently in first place, PSV will look to stay on top of the table. Despite high competition from Ajax, Feyenoord will likely not be title competitors this season after losing nearly half their starting 11 since the last campaign.
