Former Dutch star Van Bommel was appointed PSV coach while still with Australia at Russia 2018, working as an assistant to his father-in-law Bert van Marwijk.

Since taking the reins full-time, he has swooped to bring in Socceroos Trent Sainsbury and now Behich to bolster the Eredivisie side's back line.

Kiwi midfielder Ryan Thomas, 23, is also in the squad having joined before the start of the season from PEC Zwolle.

The move to Holland comes after Behich spent five years with Bursaspor in Turkey, including a year back on loan at Melbourne Heart.

The four year deal follows an impressive showing at Russia 2018 where he played in all three games for van Marwijk.

Behich, 27, has 26 caps for the Socceroos and two goals to his name, and notched up 106 appearances for Bursaspor, scoring six in the process.

The Australian was unveiled alongside Mexican midfielder Érick Gutiérrez who has joined from Pachuca.
