Joel Veltman

Veltman joined Albion in July 2020 after spending his entire career with Eredivisie side Ajax.

Putting pen-to-paper on a three-year deal at the Amex, the Netherlands international arrived on the south coast after an impressive time at the Johan Cruyff Arena, winning the Dutch top-flight on three separate occasions and the KNVB Cup.

As well as that, the club finished runners-up in the Europa League, reached the semi-finals of the Champions League, whilst Veltman also picked up a third place World Cup medal in 2014.

Having come through the ranks with Ajax, the 28-year-old played for Holland all the way through from Under-17 level up to Under-20, before making his senior debut in 2013.

He scored his only two international goals for the Oranje in the same game - a 5-0 win over the Ivory Coast in 2017. He has now played 22 times for his country.

With nearly 250 club appearances to his name, Veltman was named in the Eredivisie Team of the Season for three consecutive years between 2013-16, before suffering a serious knee injury in April 2018. He made his return to first team action in February 2019.
