Dutch outfit PSV might have appeared out of the running to sign reported Rangers target Joey Veerman – but now they’re reportedly set for a cash boost in the middle of the park.

The Eredivisie outfit was linked to Heerenveen midfielder Veerman at the same time as Rangers, alongside Dutch rivals Ajax and Serie A side Atalanta [Scottish Sun].

Back at the start of the window, PSV were mentioned amongst the frontrunners for the Dutch playmaker alongside Ajax, with claims Veerman would prefer a move closer to home.

However, Veerman himself would then quash any suggestion of a domestic transfer and cut a frustrated figure after PSV instead opted to move for Brighton midfielder Davy Propper.

Similar type players, PSV announced the move last week with Veerman previously claiming it would be now be “very difficult” to move to another club in the Netherlands [Daily Record].


However, now PSV midfielder and one-time Dutch international Pablo Rosario looks set to move to Ligue 1 OGC Nice ahead of the new campaign.

The 24-year-old midfielder looks set to move for €6m (£5.1m) [De Telegraaf] and join a Dutch revolution in Southern France.

AZ Alkmaar winger Calvin Stengs and AS Roma attacker Justin Kluivert have already joined up with Christian Galtier’s side this summer.

Rosario made 40 appearances for PSV last season and is an important deep-lying influence on the side.

Rangers fans will be hoping that should any move be concluded, the Eindhoven club don’t reignite that early interest for Veerman to fill the void.

Rangers are reportedly preparing a move somewhere in the region of £7m for Dutch 22-year-old Veerman [Glasgow Times] with plenty of fans viewing Joey as the marquee deal of the summer.

Not that Heerenveen are in any rush to sell – the midfielder made an appearance for the club at a pre-season friendly last week.
