According to a recent report over in the Netherlands, Ibrahim Affelay has offered his services to former club PSV Eindhoven. The 32 year old spent 14 years with the Dutch giants between the years of 1996 and 2010, making his way up through their youth system. The attacking midfielder then went on to place for Barcelona, Schalke, Olympiacos and Stoke City, before leaving the Potters this year after four years with the Championship side.
However, instead of just outright being offered a contract, PSV have asked for him to prove his fitness prior to agreeing to any kind of deal. He certainly isn’t over the hill by any stretch of the imagination, but going from Championship football to the top tier in Holland may be a bit of a challenge at this stage of his career.
Either way, though, it’d certainly be an interesting comeback story for Ibrahim after almost a decade away from the club.
