Strootman: I am happy to remain at PSV

Netherlands international Kevin Strootman has all but ruled out quitting PSV in the January transfer window amid reported interest from Manchester United and a host of Serie A sides.

The 22-year-old midfielder has been in fine form in the opening months of the 2012-13 campaign and several foreign clubs are keeping tabs on him.

Nevertheless, Strootman is in no rush to leave the Eredivisie leaders and is happy to stay put for the foreseeable future.

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

“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’s not on my mind all the time. I am happy at PSV and want to win the league title here first.

The former Sparta Rotterdam star has a contract with PSV until June 2016.
