“There is still nothing on the table but discussions are ongoing with more than one club,” said Jol. “I expect a few things to happen soon. We are talking to several clubs but it is up to him and his desire to go to a Champions League club.
“Maybe that won’t happen but certainly I expect a few clubs to be in the mix for him. Sunderland is one of them but I think that will be difficult. There are different clubs with different scenarios and different ideas but we know exactly what we want and if other clubs come up with the right deal then we’ll do it.”
