Ooijer Set For PSV Return
Blackburn Rovers defender Andre Ooijer is set to return to PSV Eindhoven in the summer, according to his agent anyway.
The 34-year-old's contract expires at the end of the season and most expected him to leave anyway. However, his agent (Sigi Lens) is now claiming that a deal has virtually been agreed already with the Dutch International's former side PSV (the side who came to Ewood Park from in 2006) for him to return to Holland, so this seems a near certainty now.
Lens told Sportweek magazine: "That transfer will go through. In fact all is done already.
"Andre has made his choice - he only wants to go to PSV. And the club is willing to fulfil our wishes.
"We only need to speak about some minor details and put pen to paper. I expect everything will be done in May."
Ooijer wanting to finish his career in hi homeland (as he has said) isn't a surprise at all and is more than understandable so I have nothing against him wanting to do so. After nine-years with PSV previously it isn't a surprise that Ooijer would also like to return to them either. The Dutchman got off to a wobbly start to his Ewood career but turned this round to show that he is every inch the International player that he is and I wish him all the best.
