Date of birth
Jordy de Wijs joined Hull City from PSV Eindhoven in July 2018, signing an initial three-year contract.
Born in Kortrijk, Belgium, de Wijs comes from a footballing family with his father Edwin a former professional footballer who played over 100 league matches at the highest level of Dutch football, whilst his grandfather, Hans van der Pluijm, played over 300 games for FC Den Bosch in his career and is currently the manager of Tanzanian side Singida United.
de Wijs began his career on the books of RKC Waalwijk prior to joining PSV Eindhoven's youth set-up in 2005, where he rose through the ranks to sign professional terms.
After starting out in PSV's reserve side - Jong PSV - it was during the 2015/16 campaign that the centre-back made his first-team breakthrough, making his debut in a Champions League group stage fixture against VFL Wolfsburg in October 2015.
He gained further Champions League experience in 2016/17, coming on as a half-time substitute in PSV's 2-0 defeat to Spanish side Atlético Madrid in November 2016, whilst also being on the bench for three other Group Stage fixtures.
After failing to feature for PSV in the first half of the 2017/18 season, de Wijs joined Excelsior on loan, going on to feature 15 times in the top-flight of Dutch football, before returning to the Stadion Woudestein to gain further first-team experience the following campaign, making 21 appearances.
de Wijs arrived at the KCOM Stadium with plenty of experience having made over 100 competitive appearances in all competitions and has since added 67 to his career tally in a black and amber shirt having established himself as a regular fixture in the Tigers' backline during his two seasons at the KCOM Stadium to-date.
