Groningen manager Ernest Faber has been informed that he must thin out his squad this month, with high earners Danny Hoesen and Hedwiges Maduro likely to be on the move.
Fourth choice centre-back Martijn van der Laan has also been restricted to cameo roles this season, whilst right-back Hans Hateboer does not want to extend his current contract beyond the summer.
The northern side also have too many attacking midfielders in their ranks. One of them, Bryan Linssen, is interesting Belgian teams whilst former Manchester City youth product Albert Rusnák is close to agreeing a deal with American side Real Salt Lake.
Meanwhile, Henk Fraser’s Vitesse want to return left-back Keisuke Ota to Japan following an underwhelming spell in the Netherlands, plus unwanted striker Abiola Dauda may finally get his move away from Arnhem.
More concerning to Fraser will be the speculation surrounding Marvelous Nakamba, as Anderlecht are reportedly in for the energetic midfielder, as well as interest from Real Betis for skipper Guram Kashia.
On the plus side, Vitesse are close to resigning former Manchester United left-back Alexander Büttner.
