Barcelona confirmed on Thursday they have signed 20-year-old NAC Breda defender Mike van Beijnen.

The right-back becomes the third Dutchman to join the club this summer (after Ludoveit Reis and Frenkie de Jong) and joins on a free transfer.

Van Beijnen has signed a contract with the club until 2021 which has a release clause of €100 million.

Interestingly the defender is the son of De Jong’s agent Ali Dursun and actually played with De Jong at Willem II. Make of that what you will.

The arrival of another right-back into the Barcelona B team will also prompt speculation over Moussa Wague’s future - is he going to be promoted to the first team for next season?
