NEC Nijmegen technical director Carlos Aalbers insists striker Collins John does have a future at the club.

John, who is on a one-year loan from Premier League side Fulham, has struggled to prove his fitness at the Eredivisie outfit and it had been reported he had been told to find another club.

But Aalbers told AD Sportwereld: "Collins must work on his condition so that he can play entire games. John doesn't need to leave us per se.

"I can say that a club has called us about him, but again he doesn't need to leave us."
