​Newcastle, Arsenal target Dumfries open to Premier League move

Netherlands international Denzel Dumfries admits he wants to play abroad at some stage of his career.

The right back has impressed at PSV Eindhoven for the past two and a half years.

He is currently talking to the club about a new contract, but he may want to move to a club in England or Germany in the near future.

Dumfries has been linked to Newcastle United and Arsenal recently.

"We are in talks and the intention, as it stands, is to extend my contract," the defender told Voetbal International.

"But a contract extension does not automatically mean that I will stay here longer.

"My interests currently align with those of PSV of course - but I also have my own career. There are new things on the horizon [for me].

"[A departure] did not happen [due to the pandemic] and I am very happy at PSV. But I do feel that, as a footballer and as a person, I am ready to take the next step abroad.

"The Premier League and the Bundesliga, they suit my game. I can see the headlines again, but I think I can say this and I think everyone can see that I am ready to move on.

"I have played for four years at the highest level in the Netherlands and have played more than a hundred matches for PSV. It will soon be time for the next step [but] a title will be the icing on the cake."
