Player Profile

The Dutchman moved to Liverpool in the summer of 2018 rather than sign a professional contract at Ajax. Hoever had been there since he was 14, joining from AZ's junior set up. The right-back's progress was pretty promising at Liverpool. After debuting for the under-18s in September 2018, Hoever reached a new milestone every month: a U-19 debut in October, U-23 debut in November and promotion to Melwood to train with the first team in December. On 7 January 2019, at 16 years, 11 months and 21 days, Hoever became the third-youngest debutant in Liverpool's history when he came on in the fifth minute of an FA Cup round tie at Molineux. The youngest is Jerome Sinclair (16y, 6d) followed by Jack Robinson (16y, 8m, 8d). In May 2019, Hoever became a European U-17 champion as the Dutch won the title in Ireland.
As the 2019/20 season progressed it was apparent that Welshman Neco Williams was preferred to Hoever as an understudy to Alexander-Arnold with the Dutchman only getting first-team games in the cup competitions. On 19 September 2020 Hoever was sold to Wolves for £13.5 million including 4 million in add-ons and a 15% sell-on clause. He made five Premier League starts that season and four in 2021/22. Still only twenty years old, he was loaned to PSV Eindhoven for 2022/23, where it was hoped he wold get some much needed game time at a top quality level to help his development.
