The Holland U21 international has seen his future speculated on for some time, with a transfer having been blocked during the January window.

It is now being reported that Gronigen will relax their stance over the summer and open themselves up to offers.

A move to England would be Van Dijk's preference, and he is expected to have plenty of options to choose from.

His agent claims clubs from the Premier League and Championship have already expressed an interest, with Brighton and Cardiff said to be leading the chase.

Henk Maarten Chin told Voetbal International: "The Eredivisie would be fantastic, but England is the best option. His playing style would fit there.

"There are many Championship sides interested, but there are also clubs from the Premier League that are following him.

"He is ready to take the next step."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
