It means the Utrecht midfielder, who has been a revelation in the Eredivisie, will have to wait for his debut in Oranje.

Danny Blind has now decided to add Watford winger Steven Berghuis to his squad for the ties with Republic of Ireland, Poland and Austria. This is despite Berghuis only making nine appearances for Watford last season.

Netherlands squad travel to Portugal on Sunday for a training camp. Their first friendly is in Dublin against the Republic of Ireland this Friday.
