Memphis Depay history

27-year-old forward Memphis Depay burst onto the scene at PSV Eindhoven.

The Dutch striker was one of the leading lights of the Eredivisie side and he made 124 appearances in all competitions before a megabucks switch to Manchester United.

However, the tricky front man failed to make an impression at Old Trafford.

After just two years at United he signed for Lyon and in recent years he’s enjoyed great success with the French side, finally living up to his almighty potential.

Last season he netted 20 and assisted 12 in the French Ligue 1.

Kopites took to Twitter to demand the move after Depay stood out for his country against Ukraine on Sunday night.

He registered three key passes and four successful dribbles, the opposition had a tough time containing him.

It was a display which showed that he can bring exactly what we’re missing; a lethal touch and direct running through the middle.
