23-year-old defender Jetro Willems, who clinched the Eredivisie title twice with PSV, will continue his career in Germany with Eintracht Frankfurt. Willems made 144 Eredivisie appearances for PSV, scoring eleven goals in the process.

After having been handed his debut as a professional football player by Sparta Rotterdam, Jetro Willems joined PSV’s Academy in 2011. He was seventeen years of age when he made twenty Eredivisie and six UEFA Europa League appearances in his first season in Eindhoven. He won the Dutch Cup in that season. Willems made his debut for the Dutch national team in 2012. He was also in action at the 2016 EURO and was the youngest player to ever participate in the European Championship. At just 18 years and 71 days old he started for Netherlands in their Group B fixture with Denmark.

Willems won the Dutch title with PSV for the first time in 2015. He had a major impact on the success, with over ten assists. He faced a lengthy spell on the sidelines with injury the next season but fought back and was crowned champion again when PSV beat PEC in Zwolle on the last match day of the 2015-16 season. On top of winning the Dutch title on two occasions and the KNVB Beker, Jetro Willems also won Dutch Super Cup three times. Willems has been capped 22 times by his country.
