Dutch defender open to Liverpool, Manchester United, or Tottenham move

Stefan de Vrij had admitted to being open to a move to the Premier League with Liverpool, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur all monitoring his situation, Daily Star reports.

The 22-year-old defender is already part of the Holland national team set up and played a role in helping his club, Feyenoord, finish second in the Eredivisie.

Louis van Gaal is hoping he can lure the player to Old Trafford to fill the large void left by the departures of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic.

Reinforcing the United defence is something the Dutch boss wishes to improve due to the squad only having three natural centre backs in Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, and Chris Smalling, who have all been out through injury towards the end of the previous seasons.

Playing over 100 times for his club since rising from their youth set up, De Vrij has played at the under-16 level all the way to the senior squad and could now be on his way to England in order to meet up with his current national team manager.

Speaking to the media, he said: “The chances are that I will leave, I can probably confirm this.

“I am with the Dutch national team so I don’t know the exact details.”

Liverpool and Tottenham are also eyeing him to come in and aid the pair’s defence after the Reds conceded 50 and Spurs looking likely to lose Michael Dawson and Jan Vertonghen.
