Jetro Willems: PSV Eindhoven full-back signs new contract

The teenage left-back had been linked with a switch to the Premier League champions and reports had suggested John Guidetti could be included in a swap deal.

Guidetti ruled out any prospect of joining PSV on Tuesday and now Willems has committed his future to the club by agreeing a deal at Philips Stadion until 2017.

"When I came here from Sparta Rotterdam I had not achieved anything," the 19-year-old told the club's official website. "Now I have already played at the European Championship."

Willems joined PSV in 2011 from Sparta and broke into the first team following injuries to fellow defenders Erik Pieters and Abel Tamata.

He was included in the Netherlands' squad for Euro 2012 and he was the youngster player to appear in the tournament in Poland and Ukraine.

The youngster now wants to follow up signing a new contract by helping PSV to win the Eredivisie title, saying: "First we have to win on Sunday against Ajax."

PSV are currently second in the table and trail leaders Ajax by three points ahead of the weekend's crunch clash in Eindhoven.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
