Liverpool’s Nigerian-born fringe player, Bobby Adekanye says he is bent on leaving The Reds this summer, as he wants to keep alive his options in the transfer market.
After failing to hook a switch to SS Lazio of Italy in the January window, footballlive.ng can report that the Holland-born star is now thinking of return to the country of his birth.
Consequently, Adekanye, whose deal to Lazio fell flat due to myriad of controversies in the Rome-based club’s clearance for the player, is now looking in the direction of a deal in the Dutrch Eredivisie.
Adekanye, who is currently on international duty with Holland’s under-20 squad, said he is prepared to return to his country of birth when he comes off contract in June.
He added: “I spoke to a few guys who are now playing in the Eredivisie and making minutes.
“They told me that the level is good for young players, so that’s advice I can take with me.
“I can now think about that. I watch the Eredivisie a lot, it looks good and I think it could be a good step to return to the Netherlands.
“I can go to a big club and gain experience there, just play a little less minutes. Or I go to a smaller club and make more minutes there.
“I think that I am ready to play somewhere in a first team. That will be a big step, because I have not played professional football yet.
“I have trained with big players, but have not yet played a match and that is not the same.
“But that is one of the options. I have to make a decision about that. So, we’ll see which one I am going to take.”
