The 23-year-old has revealed today that he has told Heerenveen management of his desire to leave, whilst also stating a top Dutch side has been in contact with his agent over a move.

Pele van Anholt told Fox Sports, ”A Dutch club who normally ends higher in the league table then SC Heerenveen has spoken with my management, I can not tell you who the club is. I can only say it’s a club with a very fanatic support.”

According to rumours, it seems either Feyenoord or FC Twente is going to be his next club. ¬†It’s would more than likely be FC Twente rather than Feyenoord. The Tukkers got 3 million euro’s from Norwich City for the sale of Leroy Fer to QPR and after the free transfer of Roberto Rosales to Malaga, the club still has no new right-back.

If Pele van Anholt goes to FC Twente then he is going to be reunited with Hakim Ziyech, who moved from Heerenveen to Enschede last week.
