Ryan Thomas signs from PEC Zwolle

PSV and PEC Zwolle have reached a verbal agreement over the transfer of Ryan Thomas. The 23-year-old midfielder from New Zealand has agreed personal terms with the reigning Eredivisie champions. The All Whites midfielder will put pen to paper on a four-year contract in Eindhoven when he has passed a medical. “I’m really looking forward to the new challenge”, says Thomas.

Stop rumours
PSV, PEC Zwolle and Thomas decided to reveal the move and stop the rumours, although the transfer has not been finalised yet. “PEC Zwolle host sc Heerenveen in their opening league fixture tonight and Thomas’ absence would only open the door to speculation. That would not be in the interest of anyone and therefore we have opted to communicate openly”, explains PSV’s Director of Football John de Jong.

Midfield controller
“PSV are delighted the New Zealand international will join us. Ryan Thomas is the ultimate  midfield controller”, continues De Jong “We’ve been following him for some time yet and feel he’s ready for the next step in his career.”

‘Take the next step’
Ryan Thomas is very happy to be at PSV. “I think it’s the right time to take the next step”, says Thomas. “I’ve a learnt a lot during my spell at PEC Zwolle and I think it’s great I will be able to show my skills in Eindhoven now. This is what I’ve been looking forward to”.
