PSV ace Strootman in no rush to leave for bigger club

Kevin Strootman insists he is no hurry to leave Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven.

The 22-year old Dutch midfielder is being linked with a winter exit form the Philips Stadion with a number of big European clubs, including Manchester United, showing considerable interest.

But Strootman says he is keen to remain with PSV and achieve success before considering a potential departure in the summer.

"A move abroad in the winter transfer window is by no means ideal," Strootman told NUsport.

"That would only give you two weeks to adapt to your new surroundings. If a club really wants me, they will return in the summer.

"And it's not like I want to leave PSV at all costs in the summer. We will hopefully play in the Champions League again next season.

"Of course, I have ambition and I occasionally discuss certain clubs with my agent, Chiel Dekker, but a transfer is not on my mind all the time. I am happy at PSV and want to win the league title here first."
