Midfield players Wilfred Bouma and John de Jong have extended their contracts with UEFA Cup quarter-finalists PSV Eindhoven.
The 25-year-old Bouma, capped eight times by the Netherlands, has extended his previous deal by three years until summer 2008. "If there are other clubs interested, then there is time for that in the future," he said. "But for now that is completely out of my thoughts." Bouma, a product of PSV's youth system, made his debut on 26 October 1994, and has been a first-team regular since 1999.
De Jong deal
Meanwhile, De Jong, who joined PSV from FC Utrecht in 2000, has added two more years to his contract, tying him to the Dutch club until summer 2007. The 27-year-old spent last season on loan at SC Heerenveen but this term the former Dutch Under-21 international has been a first choice.
De Jong played five times in the UEFA Champions League group stage, scoring two goals including a last-minute winner against RC Deportivo La Coruña. He said: "It is very pleasing. It is not usual for a player to go on loan and then be offered a contract extension a year later." PSV face Newcastle United FC in the UEFA Cup quarter-final first leg at the Philips stadium tomorrow.
