PSV Eindhoven to sign Mexico winger Lozano

IANS  |  The Hague 

Dutch football club PSV has announced that it has reached an agreement with Mexican side CF Pachuca to buy Mexico winger Hirving Lozano.

Lozano visited the Netherlands for a medical examination on Monday and gave his approval to a contract until 2023 with PSV. Afterwards the winger returned to Russia, where he is active at the Confederations Cup with Mexico, reports Xinhua news agency.

The 21-year-old played at the CF Pachuca youth academy and made his first team debut in 2014. In 133 official matches for Pachuca he scored 41 times and he produced 28 assists.

In 2016 he captured the Mexican championship with Pachuca. Lozano debuted for the Mexican team in February 2016. He scored two times in 15 internationals.

PSV hope to return to the top of the Dutch league with Lozano. After clinching the Dutch title in 2015 and 2016 PSV finished on a disappointing third place in the Eredivisie last season.
