wijna psWijnaldum made his debut in the Eredivisie for Feyenoord at the age of sixteen, and eight years later the now PSV captain believes he is ready to leave the Eredivisie for one of the top European leagues.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Winaldum confirmed his intentions to leave PSV this summer if a “Great club” comes knocking.

The 24-year-old said,“I am happy at PSV but I am a player with a lot of ambition. I want to play in a stronger league than the Eredivisie.

“With my quality I feel I can bring a lot to a team that I will join. I want to show it in the big leagues; England, Italy, Spain, Germany and France.

“It depends on how I feel. When I feel I want to go, I will do it. It is difficult to say when I want to go, if a great club come in for me then I will think about it.

“Being the captain does not affect my decision. I have learnt from it, but there is no guarantee that I will stay because I am captain.”

Wijnaldum went on to talk about the Premier League, and revealed he has regular conversations with fellow Dutchmen Tim Krul (Newcastle United) and Leroy Fer (QPR) about life in England.

Wijnaldum added, “I see a few games. I look at the big clubs and the ones not so big,”

“I speak with Leroy Fer and Tim Krul about England a lot. Tim has been in England since he was 17. He only says good things about England and living in Newcastle.

“The stadium is big with 50,000 people, the fans are great and life is great there.

“You have better players and teams in England, and for myself it is better to play in a better league against better players.”
