#9 Luukinho de Jong (C)

Luuk de Jong, our new striker! Will he be the first goalscoring machine since Kezman? He didn't exactly succeed outside the Eredivisie but now is his chance to shine. He has signed a 5-year contract and will wear number 9. Good luck Luuk.

I expect him to be around as good as Matavz was for us...

While not as bad as Matavz in that respect, he does need the support of the wingers and midfield to shine. Depay, Narsingh and Maher will have to play well and then he'll be scoring them a lot.

Bring back the European Champions' Cup and Cup Winners' Cup please.

A bit of a gamble done here by Brands.

5.5 million for a guy who excelled at Twente but flopped overseas. He's still young but as Boumavilla said i'm afraid he's going to be another Berg.

I see van Wolfswinkel has gone to Saint Etienne on loan this season. Maybe we should have played it less risky and gone for him instead?

van wolfswinkel's wages is probably quite a bit higher. Isnt he on 40k a week at Norwich (I think that was the main reason he went to a club like Norwich when bigger clubs were linked!). de Jong was probably on nearer 20k a week at Gladbach

I thought Luuk was earning big at BMG as well. Above 3M a year.

In the couple of games so far De Jong has showed some good stuff. A real target man. The two years outside the Eredivisie have helped him on the physical aspect, he's very strong now. I hope he can score some goals in the next games to build up self-esteem, then we might see the old Luuk: a great player for the Eredivisie.

Luuk has been officially named as the new club captain!

Guardado will be the vice-captain

All the best Luuk

Contract extended until 2020

This will most likely be his last season in a PSV shirt but a nice gesture nonetheless by both Luuk and the club

Not sure what kind of club will pick him up then next summer. His BMG / Newcastle stats weren't great.
