Sergiño Dest will most likely be PSV’s next addition. According to various media, the people of Eindhoven have reached an agreement with FC Barcelona to rent the 22-year-old wing defender.
The Eindhovens Dagblad and Voetbal International report that PSV also stipulates an option to buy on the former Ajax player who was born in Almere and plays for the American national team.
Dest has no prospect of a basic place at Barcelona, where his contract has another two years. Last season, the Spanish top club stole him at AC Milan, for which he only played eight league matches.
Dest was included in the American World Cup selection at the end of last year. He played in all matches of ‘Team USA’ in Qatar, including the 3-1 lost eighth final against the Dutch.
PSV would plan to medically examine Dest on Sunday or Monday. As a result, the defender can still be registered for the diptych with Rangers FC for a Champions League ticket. The first meeting is Tuesday in Glasgow, the return next Wednesday in the Philips Stadium.
