Bouma yesterday signed a two-year deal at PSV, five years after leaving the Philips Stadion for Aston Villa.
He was initially a regular at Villa before a broken leg curtailed his progress and he was released on a free transfer at the end of last season.
The 32-year-old joined up with PSV to maintain his fitness levels but a contract offer soon materialised and Bouma was happy to commit himself to the Eindhoven club.
He told the club's official website: "It is up to the coach to decide when he needs me but I would like to show I can still contribute.
"PSV is a team with great potential.
"I am very happy to be back at PSV."
