ROMEO CASTELEN IN HSV SWITCH

Romeo Castelen has agreed to join Bundesliga club HSV on a four-season contract. The Dutch international passed a medical Friday after the two clubs agreed terms. The remaining formalities were completed Monday morning, and Castelen immediately took part in training at his new employer. The transfer sum remains undisclosed.

Feyenoord recently offered Castelen an extension to his contract but the 24-year-old said he would like to talk with other clubs. Feyenoord gave the right-winger permission to speak with HSV, and he quickly agreed terms.

Romeo Castelen joined Feyenoord in 2004 from ADO Den Haag, blossoming immediately at De Kuip. The speedy winger quickly earned himself a starting jersey as part of a three-man attack with Dirk Kuyt and Salomon Kalou. It led to international recognition too and the player currently has ten Dutch caps, as well as a Euro 2006 under 21s winner’s medal.

His first two years were Castelen’s best in Rotterdam. Last season was less successful for both the Dutchman and a struggling Feyenoord team. Castelen missed the first part of the campaign due to a bad ankle injury. All told, Romeo Castelen played 79 competitive games for Feyenoord, scoring 21 times.
