According to De Telegraaf, Ronald Koeman will sit down with Ajax full-back Sergino Dest over the next week to discuss his international future.

The 18-year-old Ajax right-back is set to be called up by the U.S national team for their upcoming matches with Cuba and Canada. If Dest plays in those games he is no longer eligible to switch countries.

Netherlands must now act to convince Dest to choose the country of his birth and head coach Ronald Koeman will meet with the defender this week for talks.

Dest will then have to make a quick decision between the two countries.

On Mohamed Ihattaren, De Telegraaf adds that Koeman has regular contact with the PSV midfielder and has outlined his plans for him. The KNVB and Koeman will give the 17-year-old time to deal with his father’s illness but expect a decision to be made between Netherlands and Morocco by the end of this year.
