It is hardly surprising, given there are now multiple Dutch managers in the Premier League for the first time in its history, that there is a sudden influx of transfers from the region too.
Daley Blind, Eljero Elia, Daryl Janmaat and Siem de Jong were the players brought to the top flight from the Eredivisie last season, with those numbers supplemented by the arrivals of Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pelle as non-Dutch recruits from the division.
It seems those signings were just the start though, as Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum both confirmed switches to the English top tier earlier this summer, followed by two cheaper compatriots, announced on the same day.
According to reports, Jeremain Lens and Jordy Clasie cost Sunderland and Southampton £8m each, but it seems one of those clubs has nabbed themselves a bargain and the other, less so.
Clasie, who worked with Saints boss Ronald Koeman at Feyenoord, looks to be a steal at the money considering his stats last season.
The 24-year-old midfielder, signed to replace Morgan Schneiderlin, led the Rotterdam side with six assists, scored two goals, made the most tackles, the second-most interceptions and topped their completed passing charts.
Having received a reported sum of £25m for Schneiderlin’s all-action abilities, Koeman looks to have found, judging by those numbers, a ready-made replacement at a snip.
At the opposite end of the country, and Premier League table, Sunderland have plumped for Lens as the man they think will score enough goals to save them from another relegation fight, a battle bwin.com make them 9/4 to lose.
Like Koeman and Clasie, Lens and Dick Advocaat have worked together before, during stints at AZ and PSV.
However, the 27-year-old forward arrives at the Stadium of Light having endured a far worse season than his midfield comrade, struggling for form in the Ukraine with Dynamo Kiev.
In 37 all-competition appearances for the Sergei Rebrov-managed outfit, the Amsterdam native managed just nine strikes, only bettering his seasonal tally during his debut campaign at the NSC by two.
