Report: NYCFC interested in Dutch defensive midfielder Joey Pelupessy


New York City FC are attempting to land defensive midfielder Joey Pelupessy from Dutch side Heracles, according to the Eredivisie club’s technical director Nico-Jan Hoogma.

Hoogma told reporters on Thursday that NYCFC is interested in Pelupessy, but that Heracles aren’t interested in selling unless they’re blown away by a significant transfer fee.

Pelupessy, 24, captains Heracles and has started all 18 of the club’s league matches this season, recording one assist. He’s been a regular for the club since he joined them from fellow Dutch side Twente in June 2014, recording a pair of goals and five assists in 107 league matches.
