EINDHOVEN, Netherlands -- Indiana freshman forward Lee Nguyen signed a 3½-year contract with PSV Eindhoven.
The 19-year-old was the 2004 national boys soccer player of the year and was on the U.S. roster for last year's FIFA World Youth Championship for under-20 teams. At that tournament, played in the Netherlands, he was noticed by PSV coach Guus Hiddink.
Two trial periods with PSV's youth side "proved he is a good addition for the future," PSV said in a statement Thursday.
U.S. midfielder DaMarcus Beasley is a regular starter for PSV.
