Van de Beek offers to rent a house for Ukrainian refugees
Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek has offered to rent a house to Ukrainian refugees fleeing the deadly Russian invasion.
Van de Beek, 24, is on loan at Everton and is said to be keen to make the deal permanent.
The Dutchman is due to return to Old Trafford this summer, with three more years left on his contract with the Red Devils.
His Toffees teammate Vitaliy Mykolenko has spoken to UA Tribuna about Van de Beek’s generous offer.
The Ukrainian said: “Donny van de Beek, a world-class player, comes up to me and says, ‘I want to rent a house for people, whether it’s in the Netherlands or in Poland.
‘We will take them at the border, install them, pay'”.
Mykolenko joined Dynamo Kyiv in January and played six games, including the FA Cup fifth round tie against Boreham Wood, where he was named captain.
He has made 21 appearances for his country and is “grateful” for all the support he has enjoyed at the Merseyside club since the start of the devastating war.
The 22-year-old said: “I don’t know how to thank these people. Everyone came and asked how my family, friends were doing.
“On the second day the head coach came and said, ‘if you need a rest, if you need time, take your time.’ I am grateful to the club for their support from all sides.
“The administrator responsible for equipment said, ‘I know what your situation is. I understand how difficult it is for you. Come and have dinner with us.’
“A physio came and said: ‘I have a room, a bed for two people. Those who do not have accommodation, we are ready to accommodate them’. I am pleasantly shocked. Honestly, I am shocked”.
