Iranian youngster Alireza Jahanbakhsh has admitted that he would prefer to stay in Netherlands rather than move abroad in the summer.
The NEC Nijmegen ace has been the subject of much speculation in recent months thanks to his fine form, helping his team to promote back to the Eredivisie.
Several European clubs have all been credited with an interest in the 21-year-old in recent weeks, but the winger says he feels settled in Netherlands and effectively ruled out a move away from the country.
“I have a couple of offers from England, Belgium and the Netherlands as NEC has received two official offers, one from a Championship side in England and the other from Belgian side Anderlecht,” he told 90 TV.
“But I prefer to remain in Netherlands because I’ve just become familiar with the atmosphere and the country’s culture.”
Jahanbakhsh was voted the best player of the 2014/15 Jupiler League following an impressive performance with NEC after netting 12 goals and providing 18 assists in the Dutch second tier this season.
