PSV’s technical director Marcel Brands has confirmed that defender Maikel Verkoelen and goalkeeper Benjamin van Leer, both 20 years of age, will spend next season on loan with First Division side FC Eindhoven. The two youngsters played for Young PSV last season. FC Eindhoven finished the Jupiler League 2011/12 season in third place.

Verkoelen and Van Leer
Maikel Verkoelen joined the PSV Academy in the 2001/02 season, at the age of nine. Last season, he played for Young PSV, but regularly joined the first-team squad for full training. He made his UEFA Europa League debut on 18 July 2011, when PSV met SV Ried in a playoff match (0-0). The defender was also given playing time during PSV’s 0-8 KNVB Cup win over amateur side VVSB. Goalkeeper Benjamin van Leer joined PSV from amateur club Elinkwijk in Utrecht at the beginning of the 2007/08 season.
