    The Hague: Kevin Strootman signed a five-year contract with Italian football club AS Roma, the 23-year-old midfielder confirmed.

    His former club PSV Eindhoven had reached an agreement with AS Roma for a reported fee of 17 to 19 million euros, reports Xinhua.

    "I am looking forward to playing for this big club," said Strootman on his personal website on Wednesday night. "It is the next step in my career after developing myself at Sparta, FC Utrecht and PSV."

    Strootman started his career at Sparta Rotterdam and moved from the Dutch second division club to FC Utrecht in the January 2011 transfer window. Half a year later, he joined PSV. The 18-time Dutch international led PSV to the Dutch Cup and the Dutch Super Cup in 2012.

    PSV are having a busy summer. The Eindhoven based club have already sold Erik Pieters to Stoke City, Dries Mertens to Napoli and Jeremain Lens to Dynamo Kiev and have signed Karim Rekik (Manchester City, on loan), Adam Maher (AZ Alkmaar), Florian Jozefzoon (RKC Waalwijk), Jeffrey Bruma (Chelsea), Stijn Schaars and Santiago Arias (both Sporting Portugal).
