Beasley lands at PSV

United States midfield player DaMarcus Beasley has joined PSV Eindhoven from Chicago Fire.

United States midfield player DaMarcus Beasley has joined PSV Eindhoven from Major League Soccer side Chicago Fire.

Four-year contract
The 22-year-old Beasley, who has won 36 caps for his country and played at the 2002 FIFA World Cup, will move to the Netherlands for a reported €2m fee. He made his MLS debut at 16 and has spent the past five years in Chicago, making a total of 114 appearances and scoring 16 goals. Beasley has agreed a four-year contract.

'Very good feeling'
"I have a very good feeling about joining PSV," Beasley told the club's official website. "The club have wanted for some time. Guus Hiddink is a very good coach and I hope to convince the supporters of my ability."

Robben replacement
PSV could use the left-sided Beasley as a direct replacement for Arjen Robben, who left the club to join Chelsea FC earlier this summer. The Dutch runners-up will enter the UEFA Champions League at the third qualifying round stage next month.

Convey moves too
Another US international on the move is Bobby Convey. The 21-year-old midfield player has joined English first division side Reading FC from D.C. United.
