PSV sells Dzsudzsk to Anzhi
PSV has sold its Hungarian striker Balázs Dzsudzsák to Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala.
The Eindhoven club sold the 24-year-old, who was still under contract until July 2015, for about 14 million euros. Dzsudzsák had been defending the PSV colours since January 2008. In the past season the Hungarian winger scored 14 goals and 14 assists. He scored seven times in the 13 European matches he played for PSV.
Anzhi, which currently rank second in the Russian competition, also includes Brazilian player Roberto Carlos and Dutch-Moroccan player Mbark Boussoufa. The latter was trained by Ajax as a young player and later played for the Belgian club Anderlecht before joining Anzhi.
"High-yield player" "In Balázs we are losing a high-yield player” said Technical Manager Marcel Brands. Early this year, the Hungarian renewed his contract with PSV until mid 2015. "Under Fred Rutten, he grew tremendously as a player and attracted international attention.” Brands said. "The moment of a transfer was clearly at hand, even though this club may be an unexpected choice."
Mr Brands said he hoped to finalise the transfer of 27-year-old midfielder Stijn Schaars from the Alkmaar club AZ. PSV is also interested in Feyenoord player Georginio Wijnaldum. The Rotterdam playmaker also has the optionof signing a new contract with Feyenoord.
