Oscar Hiljemark: Sweden Under-21 star has joined PSV Eindhoven

Hiljemark has signed a four-and-a-half year contract with PSV and has cost the Dutch club a fee in the region of €2.2million (£1.8m).

The Sweden Under 21 international had also been a target for the likes of Anderlecht and Nice, and is looking forward to making his mark with PSV.

"I feel great here," the 20-year-old told his new club's official website. "PSV have a big reputation in the whole of Europe.

"This choice feels very good. I am looking forward to playing here for PSV.

"And, of course, to become a champion, just like with Elfsborg - two titles in one season, that would be fantastic."

Reports have suggested that Hiljemark has been earmarked as a long-term replacement for Kevin Strootman, who is expected to be the subject of plenty of interest at the end of the season.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
