Kevin Strootman did not expect to leave PSV Eindhoven

Kevin Strootman is surprised that he left PSV Eindhoven in the summer.

Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman has insisted that he did not expect to leave PSV Eindhoven this summer, particularly not for a large transfer fee.

Strootman said that he had a good feeling about Roma as soon as he started to speak to the club about the move.

"PSV sold a lot of players during the last transfer window, but that is not what pushed me away," he told Voetbal International.

"To be honest, I didn't think I would leave. But what happened is very simple – I was strongly wanted by Roma and there was instantly a good feeling between us."

Strootman has 20 caps and two goals for the Netherlands.
