Van der Wiel played 22 games for PSG last season under Carlo Ancelotti, and even though he has made 9 appearances in 13 league games under coach Laurent Blanc, the Dutchman doesn’t appear to be in the long term plans.

With a World Cup looming the the right-back will be hoping to play regular football to ensure he flies to Brazil with the Dutch squad. Van der Wiel gained a recall to the national team for the recent friendlies with Japan and Colombia, but finds Feyenoord right back Daryl Janmaat ahead of him in coach Louis van Gaal’s plans.
