PSV Eindhoven striker Ola Toivonen is set to snub interest from the Premier League by putting pen-to-paper on a new deal with the Dutch giants, Sky Sports reports.
The Sweden international has been linked with moves to the likes of Newcastle United and Norwich City ever since the summer, but PSV managed to keep a hold of him.
And despite continued speculation over where he future lies, club technical director Marcel Brands remains confident that the 27-year-old will end up agreeing to stay at the Philips Stadion.
Brands also confirmed that the club would be willing to risk losing him on a free transfer next summer if fresh terms can’t be agreed between the two, but he is sure that things won’t make it to that stage.
He told www.telegraaf.nl: “I have no indication that he does not intend to sign. Otherwise, he would not let us wait so long. Why would he do that?”
Brands plans to meet with Toivonen’s agent Mino Raiola before the striker heads off for international duty to take part in a World Cup playoff against Portugal later this month.
“(Talks) were agreed last week when Mino was in America,” Brands said. “We need to see if we will meet or speak by phone.”
He added: “That word (deadline) is not applicable. We have made the appointment, which Ola agreed would happen before he joins up with the national team.”
