Davy Pröpper (born September 2, 1991 in Arnhem ) is a Dutch national football player . He is under contract with the English first division club Brighton & Hove Albion . His brothers Robin and Mike are also soccer players.



Pröpper began his career in his hometown in the youth of Vitesse Arnhem . He made his debut for the professional team on January 17, 2010 in the game against NEC Nijmegen , when he came on for Kevin van Diermen in the 84th minute . He scored his first goal in the Eredivisie the following season in the 2-4 loss to Ajax Amsterdam . In 2015 he moved to PSV Eindhoven after more than 130 games . With his new club, he became champions of the Dutch premier league in the 2015/16 season and played in the UEFA Champions League . After three successful years and 14 Champions League games, in which he scored two goals, Pröpper moved to the English Premier League Brighton & Hove Albion for a transfer fee of 13 million euros . This makes him the most expensive transfer in the club's history. In England, too, Pröpper was soon able to establish himself in the central midfield as in his previous positions.

National team

Pröpper played for all the Dutch national youth teams from U-18 to U-21. With the Dutch U-19s he took part in the European Championship in 2010 , but failed with his team in the preliminary round. He was used in the defeats against France and Austria . On November 16, 2013, Pröpper was in the squad of the Dutch senior team for the first time in the 2-2 draw in the friendly against Japan , but was not used and was therefore not nominated for the 2014 World Cup . He finally made his debut on June 5, 2015 in the 3: 4 defeat in the friendly against the USA , when he came on for Robin van Persie in the 57th minute of the game . He finally made his competitive debut with his substitution at half-time for the injured Wesley Sneijder in the 4-1 win against Belarus in the World Cup qualifier on October 7, 2016. His first two goals for the Elftal he scored on September 3, 2017 at 3: 1 win in the World Cup qualifier against Bulgaria .
