Eredivisie ace attacks club for blocking Premier League dream

Alfred Finnbogason has let his frustrations at Heerenveen be known after they rejected a deadline day move for his signature by Fulham.

The Icelandic ace was the subject of an £8m offer from the Cottagers on Friday – a sum that was expected to be enough to match the Dutch side’s valuation.

However, the Eredivisie outfit dismissed the bid to keep their man, who is currently the division’s top scorer with 20 goals.

Everton, Newcastle and West Ham have also been linked with the in-form forward, who was left frustrated by the club’s decision to block a transfer to England:

“They always said they wanted €10million for me and now they didn’t co-operate,” he is quoted by The Mirror.

“I am disappointed in Heerenveen because I can’t play in the Premier League.”

It is expected that a summer offer for the hit-man may be more successful, with the player himself desperate to prove his abilities on a higher stage.

Fulham did land a striker they sought for on deadline day, with Kostas Mitroglou arriving in a £12m deal from Olympiakos as one of five late additions by Rene Meulensteen.
