Jordy made his professional debut for PSV’s reserve side – Jong PSV – who ply their trade in the second tier of Dutch football, playing his first full 90 minutes in February 2014. It was however the 2015/16 season he finally made his first-team breakthrough at PSV, as his impressive progress was rewarded with a Champions League game in October 2015, with de Wijs coming of the bench to feature in the last 16 minutes of the Group Stage tie.
