Premier League Clubs On Alert As Feyenoord Star Declares Wish To Move To England

Norwegian has barely featured for the Rotterdam club this season. 

Check in to Go Ahead Eagles vs Feyenoord

Feyenoord midfield player Harmeet Singh has declared his intention to move to the Premier League, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The Norway international has only been with the Eredivisie giants now for the past two seasons, with Singh having originally moved to Feyenoord from Norwegian outfit Valerenga on an initial two-year deal in July 2012 for a fee of just 300,000 euros.

However, it is fair to say that Singh has struggled to gain a regular starting spot in midfield at the De Kuip since his move to Holland, with the 22-year-old having featured in just the eight matches in total in all competitions for Feyenoord in the previous campaign, including only seven in the league.

Meanwhile in this current season, the holding midfield player has appeared in just one game so far, in the Eredivisie, for Ronald Koeman’s side and as a result Singh says that he would now like to quit Feyenoord when the winter transfer window finally reopens for business for the year in January and move to the Premier League instead.

“The attitude towards English football is huge in Norway,” said Singh at this week’s Asian Football Awards at Wembley Stadium, where he was receiving a Special Recognition Award. “People love the game in Norway and in particular the Premier League – they love it and they are really passionate about it.

“Playing in England would be a dream for me but for now I am just thinking about finding the right club where I can play and develop myself as a football player.

“We will see what is going to happen closer to the January transfer window. I think maybe then I will know more than I know now but the most important thing for me is just to play and make it into the first national team of Norway.

“But I am working hard towards it [playing in England] because that is a dream for me also. One day, God willing, I am going to be here.”

“I’m at a massive club but at this moment I am not playing as much as I want.

“I have told them I want to leave and now we will see what’s going to happen. I explained that it is okay for me if I’m not playing here but I have to go somewhere else where I can play.

“I’m not at Feyenoord to earn money. I want to be the best footballer I can be.”
