Agent of CSKA Moscow’s Honda waiting for bids

The agent of CSKA Moscow star Keisuke Honda says he is awaiting bids for his client for a January transfer.

The agent of CSKA Moscow star Keisuke Honda says he is awaiting bids for his client for a January transfer.

Kees Ploegsma admits the Japan international is keen to leave Moscow for a bigger club but insists nothing has happened just yet.

"When a big club comes in he will want to leave but at the moment that has not happened,'' Ploegsma told Sport.co.uk. "There were opportunities to move but he has not had the offer from a top club, which is what we want.

"A lot of managers will be watching him after he played so well at the World Cup - now they can watch him more for CSKA and hopefully they will decide to try and do something in January."

Honda was linked with big clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool in the summer transfer window but no move eventuated.
