NEC Nijmegan defender Jonas Olsson is attracting major Premiership interest.

Fulham, Bolton and Newcastle are all battling to sign the Sweden international ahead of the January market.

Olsson believes he has developed as a player in the Eredivisie and has hinted the time is right to play at a higher level.

"The Eredivisie was a good step to take from Allsvenskan," the Swedish defender told Sportbladet. "I have now played here for two and a half years and feel ready for the next step."
