PSV Eindhoven have confirmed the signing of AZ Alkmaar defender Justin de Haas.

The 19-year-old centre-back, who was heavily linked with a move to Chelsea in January, joins PSV on a free transfer after his contract with AZ was dissolved last week.

De Haas has signed a two-year contract and will initially join up with the Jong PSV squad.

Speaking to the club’s website, de Haas said, “There were quite a few clubs I could go to and PSV suddenly called on the morning that we were going to talk about this. That immediately appealed to me enormously.

“If PSV calls, you are simply proud. A top club in the Netherlands, you are not just asked to do so. I hope to perform at Jong PSV as well as possible and then make the transition to the first team as quickly as possible.”
