Klaas-Jan Huntelaar was born on August 12th 1983 in a village called Drempt in the Achterhoek region of Holland. He had two brothers by parents Dirk-Jan and Maud Huntelaar, and grew up in Hummelo. Klaas-Jan had a passion for football from a very young age and joined his local team, Football Club Hummelo and Keppel at the age of 5. He played for them for six years before being scouted by Go Ahead Eagles but was unable to sign due to them being located so far away. However not long after, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar got the break through and was snapped up by De Graafschap. He signed his first youth contract at just eleven years old on April 6th 1994. This was the first step on the football career path although De Graafschap was unable to work out the player’s best position. He played all over the pitch in his first two seasons even in goal but he finally made his mark as a striker in the third season. It wasn’t long before Klaas-Jan Huntelaar was able to show his natural ability of putting the ball in the back of the net as he finished 1997/98 scoring 33 goals in 20 matches, not bad for a 14 year lad. This form carried on for 2 more seasons before drawing the attention of PSV, who signed the player in 2000.
