The Dutch right-back has been on the radars of both Premier League clubs for much of the current campaign after emerging as one of the Eredivisie’s finest young talents.
The 24-year-old has also earned recognition on the international stage, and looks likely to be a part of Louis van Gaal’s Oranje squad for the trip to Brazil in a few months’ time.
Janmaat is widely expected to leave Feyenoord during the next transfer window with his contract winding towards its close, but he says that he’s more than happy to wait until after the showpiece tournament before deciding his future:
“I recently spoke with Martin van Geel, [Feyenoord’s] technical director.” He is quoted by the Daily Star.
“Together we agreed that we suspend the negotiations on the renewal of my contract until after the summer. It is for me a special summer.
“First the World Cup with the Oranje, then perhaps a transfer.”
Janmaat also revealed that any major European league would interest him, and that his switch will not be motivated by money:
“I’ll go to the club that give me the best feeling for the future, which I think is going to be good for my development.
“And it doesn’t matter to me initially whether it is in Italy, England, Spain or Germany. I think I am the type of player who could play in all these competitions.”
