PSV exit not on Strootman's mind

Created on 27 Nov., 2012 2:07 PM GMT

Netherlands international Kevin Strootman has all but ruled out leaving PSV in the January transfer window.

The 22-year-old midfielder has been in fine form in the opening months of the 2012/13 campaign, attracting the interest of major clubs across Europe.

But Strootman says he is in no rush to leave the Eredivisie leaders.

"A move abroad in the winter transfer window is by no means ideal," Strootman told NUsport.

"That would only give you two weeks to adapt to your new surroundings. If a club really wants me, they will return in the summer.

"And it's not like I want to leave PSV at all costs in the summer. We will hopefully play in the Champions League again next season.

"Of course, I have ambition and I occasionally discuss certain clubs with my agent Chiel Dekker, but a transfer's not on my mind all the time. I am happy at PSV and want to win the league title here first."

The former Sparta Rotterdam star has a contract with PSV until June 2016.
