PSV Eindhoven and Barcelona agree Afellay transfer
PSV Eindhoven and Barcelona have reached agreement over the transfer of Dutch international Ibrahim Afellay during the next window in January, the Dutch club said on their website on Monday.
The 24-year-old midfielder is still negotiating with the Spanish champions about the terms of his contract. PSV will receive a transfer fee of 2.4 million euros, according to media reports. Afellay's business representative, Rob Jansen, told the NUsport website that there is no definitive accord yet: "It looks positive, the way things are going now. But it will be a while before there's a final deal. When it's there, we'll go public."
Afellay said he wants to round off his time at PSV in a satisfying way: "As far as I'm concerned, I'm very well able to keep things apart. And I'm very honoured that a major club like Barcelona is interested in me. I'm prepared to make the move in January, if the deal has been struck. If not, I'll wait until later."
