Man Utd signing Memphis Depay becomes youngest Eredivisie top scorer since Ronaldo

Memphis Depay was crowned as the Dutch Eredivisie Golden Boot winner on Sunday.

The 21-year old Dutch winger ended the 2014/15 campaign on 22 goals for PSV Eindhoven who won their first title since 2008.

Memphis, who signed with Manchester United for £25million recently, became the youngest player to win the Dutch top flight's scoring award since Brazilian great Ronaldo won it with PSV back in 1995.

The Holland international beat teammate Luuk de Jong to the award by two goals as Philippe Cocu's PSV dominated the campaign by beating Ajax to the premiership by 17 points.
