Vitesse striker Bony alerts Chelsea, Liverpool: I need England move for family's sake

Vitesse Arnhem striker Wilfried Bony has dropped a big hint he wants a move to England.

Bony was watched by Liverpool, Chelsea, Everton and Wigan Athletic scouts on Sunday against FC Twente.

The Ivory Coast star is frustrated with the lack of co-operation he's received from Dutch authorities in attempts to relocate his family to Holland.

"I'd like to see them more often, but I cannot while I play in the Netherlands. Twice I tried for my brother to come, but both times he had no visa. Surely this is not normal? I am very angry about it. Even for a few days they cannot seem to get here. And there is not even an explanation. I see my family only when I travel to Ivory Coast. This is a disaster, it makes me sad," confessed Bony.

"Vitesse cannot help it, but I want to leave the Netherlands as soon as I get the chance.

"When I go to play for an English club, my family can visit me at least. I call them every day, I miss them very much. They ask: 'We want to see you, when are you leaving the Netherlands?'"
