News - transfers
Van Persie to re-join Feyenoord
Robin van Persie will be returning to boyhood club Feyenoord from Turkish side Fenerbahce next week, the Dutch champions confirmed on Friday. The 34-year-old, who has scored 36 goals in all competitions since moving to Turkey in 2015, will sign a contract with Feyenoord on Monday to seal his return to the club where he began his professional career in 2002.
Ajax complete Tagliafico signing
Argentina international Nicolas Tagliafico's switch from Independiente to Ajax has been completed. Left-back Tagliafico signed a four-and-a-half-year contract in Amsterdam on Friday and joins for an undisclosed fee. The 25-year-old made his Argentina debut last June as Jorge Sampaoli guided the Albiceleste to a 1-0 victory over Brazil in his first match at the helm. Tagliafico, whose only previous spell in Europe was a season on loan at Real Murcia in the Spanish second tier, was a key member of the Independiente side that won the Copa Sudamericana in December.
Ajax re-sign Siem de Jong
Ajax have re-signed striker Siem de Jong from Premier League side Newcastle United on a three-year contract. De Jong's move was completed on Monday, with the Dutch side reportedly paying £1.8m to bring back the player who represented them at first-team level between 2007 and 2014. The 28-year-old originally joined Newcastle from Ajax for around £6m, but only started four league games over his time with the club, which was heavily interrupted by injuries. Last season, he was on loan at PSV, scoring six times in 19 league appearances.
Bahebeck heads to Utrecht on loan
Paris Saint-Germain forward Jean-Christophe Bahebeck has sealed a season-long loan move to Utrecht. The 24-year-old has scored six goals in 53 games for PSG and will return to the club next year, with no purchase option included in the deal with the Dutch side. This is the third consecutive season in which Bahebeck has been sent out on loan by the Ligue 1 giants, having enjoyed spells at Pescara and Saint-Etienne in the last two years.
Berghuis leaves Watford for Feyenoord
Watford have confirmed that Steven Berghuis has joined Feyenoord on a permanent deal. The Dutch international spent last season on loan at De Kuip and won the Eredivisie title. Berghuis has put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal for a fee thought to be around €6.5m. He made just nine appearances for the Hornets after signing from AZ Alkmaar and all of them were during Quique Sanchez Flores' time in charge at Vicarage Road.
Miazga rejoins Vitesse on loan
Chelsea have announced that United States defender Matt Miazga will spend a second season on loan at Vitesse. Miazga, 22, joined Chelsea from New York Red Bulls in 2016 before joining Vitesse for the 2016/17 campaign and helping them finish fifth and win the Dutch Cup. Miazga will join fellow Chelsea loanees Fankaty Dabo, Charlie Colkett and Mason Mount at Vitesse.

Central defender St. Juste, 20, has signed a four-year contract at De Kuip, running until mid-2021. St. Juste made his Heerenveen debut aged 18 and has now clocked up 69 Eredivisie appearances.
Ali completes permanent transfer to Vitesse
Midfielder Mukhtar Ali has completed a permanent transfer from Chelsea to Vitesse Arnhem. The 19-year-old, who played for England at both Under-16 and Under-17 level, moves back to the Eredivisie club where he spent the second half of last season on loan. Ali, who was born in Somalia, came through the Chelsea academy and was part of the team which won the FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League in 2015/16.
PSV sign Marco van Ginkel on loan
PSV Eindhoven have signed Marco van Ginkel from Chelsea on a season-long loan. Van Ginkel spent the past season-and-a-half on loan at the Eredivisie club, making 28 appearances and scoring 15 goals. The 24-year-old, who Chelsea signed from Vitesse in 2013 on a five-year contract, has also enjoyed loan spells with Stoke and AC Milan.
Dabo joins Vitesse on loan
Chelsea defender Fankaty Dabo has joined Vitesse Arnhem on a season-long loan deal. Dabo, a full-back, becomes the club's third signing of the summer, with his move following a spell on loan in League One with Swindon Town last season. The 21-year-old is the 20th Chelsea player to make a loan move to Vitesse, who finished fifth in the Dutch top flight last season.
Vuckic completes Twente deal
Newcastle United midfielder Haris Vuckic has completed a move to Twente. The 24-year-old Slovenian, whose contract with the Magpies runs out at the end of this month, has agreed a deal which will keep him at the Dutch club for the next three seasons. Vuckic leaves St. James' Park having made a total of 20 appearances for the club since his arrival in 2009. He spent time out on loan at Cardiff City, Rotherham United, Rangers, Wigan Athletic and Bradford City.
PSV sign Lozano
PSV have reached an agreement with Pachuca over the transfer of Hirving Lozano for an undisclosed fee. The Mexico international paid the Eredivisie giants a visit on Monday to undergo a medical and will sign a contract with PSV until June 2023 once the Confederations Cup is over. The 21-year-old winger becomes the second Mexican at the club, joining experienced midfielder Andres Guardado at the Philips Stadion, with fellow compatriot Hector Moreno having just left the club for Roma.
