Updated: 

Jetro Willems has joined Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt after being cleared to leave PSV.

The left-back had been given the green light to depart from the Eredivisie club's pre-season training camp amid reports he could sign for Roma.

But it is DFB-Pokal finalists Eintracht who have snapped up the 23-year-old Netherlands international for a reported fee of EUR9million.

"I really wanted to change to a club that gives me a good perspective and where I can play regularly," Willems said after signing a four-year deal.

"I had very good discussions with the club management and the coach and I am convinced that I can make the next step at Eintracht Frankfurt."
