Primary position:- RB
Stefan is the youngest son of Jan de Vrij who played for a local club known as VV Spirit.His older brothers Niels and Eric did play football in their youth, but weren't as talented as their youngest brother,and they didn't make the final cut.de Vrij has particapted in the U16 and U17 levels for the Oranje and was an integral part of the Dutch U17 team that finished 2nd in the 2009 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship.He played in the CB position and played every match,without being substituted,i.e. every minute of the tournament.
Playing for Feyenoord, in the 2009/2010 season,being more of a fringe player he clocked 1356 minutes with 15 starts.However,in the 2010/2011 season he has come to become one of their most promising and important players already clocking 2165 minutes with 24 starts and scoring one goal and picking up five yellow card in the process.He is a very disciplined defender, not only having brilliant defensive capabilities, but also great attacking abilities.His rate of development is astonishingly high and is considered one of the best young defenders of Europe.Seeing his stats, de Vrij should easily get +2 if not +3 in the upcoming changes.
Though contracted to Feyenoord till the summer of 2012, de Vrij has already drawn the attention of one Europe's largest clubs,Arsenal.However,quite contradictorily he has expressed a future with Barcelona.However,Feyenoord have set a price of around 4 million pounds on him,which is very cheap for such a defender.However Arsenal have a higher chance of signing him as they have a pretty good relationship with Feyenoord ever since the transfer of Robin van Persie in 2004. The Gunners also recently farmed teenage sensation Ryo Miyaichi out on loan to Feyenoord for free.
What to expect?
The future does look bright for Stefan.
