A host Premiership clubs are on red alert after Miralem Sulejmani declared yesterday he planned to ask away from Heerenveen.

Just this month, the teenage Serb has been scouted by Chelsea, Manchester United, Aston Villa and Everton and he admitted yesterday: "Previously, I have always declared that I would like to stay another year, but the situation has changed.

"Heerenveen has said that it wants to upgrade my contract, but the club has said nothing concrete to me for months.

"So, now I feel it is time to leave.

"I want to be like Ruud van Nistelrooy. He made his first steps at Heerenveen before going to PSV, Manchester United and Real Madrid. I want a career like Van Nistelrooy."
