Blackburn's Ooijer admits likely Holland return

Blackburn Rovers defender Andre Ooijer has confirmed he's likely to return to Holland at the end of the season.

PSV Eindhoven, Ajax, AZ Alkmaar and Feyenoord are all believed to be tracking the 34-year-old, while Rovers are understood to be keen to start talks on his future.

Ooijer told the Dutch FA’s official website: “My contract is due to expire next year and then I am a free agent at the end of the season.

“In principle, I am allowed to talk to other clubs from January. If it is up to me and my family, I will return to the Netherlands.”

The experienced stopper arrived at Blackburn in 2006 from PSV, but is unsure who he will join when his Rovers deal runs out.

He added: “I have read that there is a lot of interest in me, but I really have got no idea yet which club I will eventually move to.”
