Spanish giants FC Barcelona have agreed a deal to sign Holland midfielder Ibrahim Afellay from PSV Eindhoven in January.
The deal was announced Monday evening by both clubs though a contract is still to be agreed between the Spanish champions and the player.
However, if everything goes according to plan, the Holland international will move to the Nou Camp when the January transfer window opens on New Year’s Day.
A statement on Barcelona’s official website read: “PSV Eindhoven and Barcelona have reached an agreement on a deal to bring Ibrahim Afellay to Barca, subject to successfully settling personal terms between the player and the Catalan club over the coming weeks.
“Until the deal is finally settled, Ibrahim Afellay wishes to concentrate on the upcoming important games for PSV.”
