Lozano heading to Eindhoven

PSV have won the race for Hirving Lozano after announcing the Pachuca winger has agreed a six-year contract with the Eredivisie club.

De Boeren finally got their man to conclude a drawn-out transfer saga that went on for more than six months, with both parties expressing relief at the successful outcome.

Lozano drew admiring glances from Europe after helping Los Tuzos to the Liga MX title and the CONCACAF Champions League, where he scored eight goals to win the competition's Golden Boot.

The Mexico international links up with compatriot Andres Guardado at the Philips Stadion, admitting he sought advice from his El Tri team-mate and Hector Moreno, who recently secured a move to Roma after two years in Eindhoven.

"They (Guardado and Moreno) said it's a really good club with a bright future and is a good project and that everything is really good at the club, the stadium, everything," Lozano told the club's official website.

"I'm always going to try to give my best, I'm going to work hard, always do the best daily. I'm going to try to put everything into every game and try to do the work to always make the difference on the pitch.

"I like to play as a winger. I've played there almost my whole career, on the outside, so I'm more used to this and I like that more but I can play in the middle of the field without any problem."

PSV technical director Marcel Brands added: "I'm glad it finally succeeded. We spent more than six months working on this transfer and some creativity was needed to eventually get the transfer through."
