Official | Eintracht Frankfurt sign Jetro Willems

Eintracht Frankfurt have completed the signing of Jetro Willems from PSV Eindhoven on a four-year deal. Kicker report the fee to be €5 million.

The Dutchman underwent his medical in Frankfurt on Monday. However, there was a disagreement over the transfer fee which delayed the move. The two parties finally came to an agreement.

“What’s important is that Jetro is now with us,” sporting director Fredi Bobic told the club’s website. “He’s a young and very ambitious player who will strengthen our team.”

“I really wanted to move to a club that offered me a good outlook and where I could play regularly. I had very good discussions with the club management and the head coach so I’m convinced that I can take the next step in my career with Eintracht Frankfurt,” added Willems.

Coming through the youth ranks at PSV, Willems won the Eredivisie on two occasions whilst creating 34 goals in all competitions for the Dutch club. The 23-year-old made his international debut at just 18.
