Contract until: 30.06.2016. Transfer fee: FREE
With his contract running out in the summer, Vilhena is definetely one of the best bargains of the summer transfer window. A player who has been tipped for big things and has been one of the few stand out players for Feyenoord. He has helped his side to win the Dutch Cup this season and the time seems right for him to look for a change of scenery.
He has never truly shown his quality on a consistent basis. However, on those brief moments when everything clicks, does look a special talent who is capable of playing for some of Europe’s top teams. This season, he has amassed 5 goals and 4 assists in the Eredivisie and could have been more had Feyenoord not been so out of sorts at times during the season. The best description of him as a player is that he is luxury flair player who would flourish in a team which allows him freedom. to express his creative side.
A technically gifted playmaker who has a terrific eye for goal. And, is capable of executing incredible moments of magic and flair that can delight the fans.
Its going to be interesting to see which team Tony Vilhena will end up.
