The 24-year-old arrived in the Catalan capital on Thursday to complete his switch from Dutch giants PSV and “at four o’clock he visited the Club Medical Services, where he was tested for resistance and podology and the underwent x-ray tests and coronary and muscular echographies”.
The Dutch international winger then went to the Hospital de Barcelona to complete his medical, Barca stated on their official website.
First-team doctor Ricard Pruna declared Afellay fit and said, “He is perfectly healthy. He is excellent fitness … he has had no muscle injuries to date, and neither have we spotted any scars to suggest he has injuries in the past.”
Afellay is expected to sign a four-and-a-half contract with Barcelona. (Goal.com)
After eight seasons in the Dutch Eredivisie with PSV Eindhoven Ibrahim Afellay has sealed a deal to join La Liga giants Barcelona on a four and a half year deal. The 24 year old Dutch international was linked with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool earlier in the season but a move to the Nou Camp trumped all offers on the table and Pep Guardiola has another gem to add to his squad.
For the record the deal will cost in the region of £2.5m a small fee due to the fact the four time Dutch League title winner was out of contract in the summer.
