The 28-year-old, who played for Fortuna Dusseldorf in Germany’s second tier last season, joined PSV as an eight-year-old and made his way through the youth system before making his senior debut in 2013.

From his first 100 matches playing for PSV, the Eindhoven-based team won 78. It placed him among the top 10 players with the most Eredivisie victories from their first 100 fixtures in the competitions – an illustrious list that includes the legendary Johan Cruyff as well as Edwin Van der Sar.

Hendrix was a key player for PSV across his eight senior seasons, impressing under Phillip Cocu and Mark Van Bommel as they won the Eredivisie in 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2017-18.


The one-time Netherlands international also won a pair of Johan Cruyff Shield trophies at PSV.

During his time in Eindhoven, Hendrix played Champions League football against Manchester United, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid.

He was in the PSV team that stunned Louis van Gaal’s United in the 2015-16 group phase as they qualified ahead of the Red Devils to set up a last-16 showdown with Atletico Madrid.

In 2018-19, Hendrix’s PSV also went head-to-head with Lionel Messi’s Barcelona, Harry Kane and Tottenham and Italian giants Inter.

Spartak Moscow came calling in 2021 and the Russian powerhouse forked out 500,000 ($A829,850) to prise Hendrix from PSV.

In his second season, he was loaned back to Eredivisie albeit with Feyenoord, who went on to finish runners-up in the 2021-22 UEFA Europa Conference League before making 20 appearances for Dusseldorf in the 2.Bundesliga, coming up against Socceroos star Jackson Irvine.
