According to MLS Soccer, NYCFC are interested in Dutch defensive midfielder, Joey Pelupessy. Here’s what found.
Nico-Jan Hoogma, sporting director for Heracles (Pelupessy’s current club), confirmed that NYCFC was interested in the player. However, Heracles is not interested in selling without a “significant transfer fee.”
Pelupessy, a 24 year old defensive midfielder, is the captain of his current club, has made 18 starts, and has one assist for the club so far this season.
As a defensive midfielder, we have to wonder, is he a backup for Alex Ring, a replacement for Yangel Herrera, or just some more midfield depth?
Let us know what you think in the comments below.
As for highlights, there’s not much out there but we did find this absolute stunner he scored back in October, 2016. Enjoy
