Voetbal International reported that PSV Eindhoven had received an offer from Zenit st Petersburg for Propper as they seek a replacement for Axel Witsel. However, that initial bid has been rejected by PSV.

Speaking at his press conference, Phillip Cocu stated that he expects Propper to remain in Eindhoven, ” I expect that Davy Propper will finish the season here at PSV. Davy is enjoying his football here in Eindhoven ”

“But the transfer market is still going and it does not close until the 1st February.”

Davy Propper signed for PSV Eindhoven in 2015 from Vitesse Arnhem for a transfer fee of 5 million euro’s.
