Kevin Strootman: In no rush to leave PSV Eindhoven despite attracting major inte

A number of Premier League and Serie A sides are thought to be weighing up moves for the midfielder when the transfer window reopens in January.

PSV coach Dick Advocaat admitted last weekend that Strootman was likely to leave the club sooner rather than later after impressing for club and country over the last 12 months.

Strootman admits he has ambitions to play in a bigger league, but he is no rush to leave the Philips Stadion.

"A move abroad in the winter transfer window is by no means ideal," Strootman told NUsport.

"That would only give you two weeks to adapt to your new surroundings. If a club really wants me, they will return in the summer.

"And it's not like I want to leave PSV at all costs in the summer. We will hopefully play in the Champions League again next season.

"Of course, I have ambition and I occasionally discuss certain clubs with my agent, Chiel Dekker, but a transfer is not on my mind all the time. I am happy at PSV and want to win the league title here first."
