Depay is concerned over PSV’s transfer interests, and is waiting to see if the club add extra experience to their young squad before committing. In the meantime the Dutch international is open to listening to offers from other clubs.

It was originally thought both Tottenham and Manchester United were interested in the winger, however, recently it has been reported that Manchester United coach Louis Van Gaal, who gave Depay his international debut as coach of the Netherlands, instructed Depay to snub Tottenham and wait for an offer from United next summer.

It looks like Van Gaal’s lack of commitment to the winger may not be enough, and his move to the premier league may be imminent. So far Depay has scored four goals in two games for PSV in the Eredivisie, and with the winger already contracted in Eindhoven until 2017, he will not come cheap.

Despite warnings from Dutch icons like Ruud Guillit and Louis Van Gaal that Depay would benefit from one more year of development in the Eredivisie, Depay seems ready to spread his wings on a larger stage.
