After weeks of rumors, Mexican winger Hirving Lozano is now headed to a new home. Linking up with fellow national team midfielder, Andrés Guardado, he will be the second Mexican at PSV (now with Héctor Moreno departing for Roma).

The Mexican international known as “Chucky” expressed his excitement at finalizing his move to the Dutch club, per Goal.com:

“I’m always going to try to give my best, I’m going to work hard, always do the best daily. I’m going to try to put everything into every game and try to do the work to always make the difference on the pitch,” Lozano told PSV’s official website.

The winger found a lot of success with his former club in Mexico, Pachuca. He recorded a total of 41 goals, and 28 assists in 133 appearances. One of the best players on the field for Pachuca, he heads to Europe at 21 years old with a Liga MX and a CONCACAF Champions League title in his trophy case.

Hirving will be a great addition to PSV. Known for being able to play as a left or right wing player, he has a strong control with the ball, and a healthy pace to beat defenders. He routinely draws in opponents, and has the vision to hit the open man.

Hirving ‘Chucky’ will be the fifth Mexican to play for PSV, with names coming before him like Andrés Guardado, Maza Rodríguez, Carlos Salcido, and Héctor Moreno. He will be in good company, and many are happy with his move to a club where he will be able to grow in a new environment.

He made his way to Holland on Monday, June 19, but will be returning to the Mexican national team for a big game on Wednesday against New Zealand in the FIFA Confederations Cup. Mexico sits with 1 point after the first match in a 2-2 draw with Portugal.
