New Coventry City midfielder Gustavo Hamer has talked about his move to England and revealed his delight at moving to the club.
The 23-year-old midfielder, who signed for a transfer fee of £1.35m, became Mark Robins’ first signing ahead of their return to the Championship after gaining automatic promotion from League One this year.
Hamer, born in Brazil, has plenty of experience despite his young age, having played for Feyenoord, where he developed through the various youth sides before making his senior debut against Ajax in 2017.
Hamer, who has now put pen to paper on a three-year-deal with Coventry committing him to the club until July 2023, spoke to ccfc.co.uk revealing his delight at making the move, saying:
“Finally, everything is done. It felt for ages that the deal was going to happen and now it finally has I am really happy to be here.
“I can’t wait to get started, I haven’t played football for almost two months because I’ve had to train by myself, so I can’t wait to go again and meet my new team mates and see everybody.
“I spoke with Chris Badlan (Head of Recruitment) and he gave me a welcome feeling about Coventry and he was at my house in Zwolle and he told me the plan that they have for me, so it felt right to come over here.”
The 23-year-old has now been joined by French defender Julien Dacosta, with Coventry announcing his arrival this morning.
Hamer could prove to be a gem of a signing from Robins at Coventry.
Having developed through Feyenoord’s youth sides and played for the Rotterdam outfit’s first team, the midfielder has some valuable experience from the Eredivise and he can draw upon that to help the Sky Blues thrive in the Championship next season.
