Beugelsdijk attracting English interest; Villa sign Omerovic

Tom Beugelsdijk

ADO Den Haag defender Tom Beugelsdijk has confirmed he is attracting interest from a number of English and German clubs, including Blackpool, Birmingham City and Rotherham United.

Beugelsdijk, 23, will decide his long-term future in the coming weeks — having already revealed he will leave the Kyocera Stadion in the summer.

“Yes it true, after my last ADO Den Haag game I spoke with Birmingham City and I visited their training ground and St Andrew’s and had I meeting with Lee Clark and his staff,” the highly-rated centre-back told Sky Sports.

“Earlier this month I spoke with the board of Blackpool FC and with Rotherham chairman Tony Stewart and their manager Steve Evans about my future.

“I have noted that all three clubs are really passionate and love their work.

“I have spoken with the ADO Den Haag owners Paul Beijersbergen and Mark van der Kallen about ADO Den Haag and the future. There are also some offers from Germany, now I need to make my mind up and will be coming to a final decision next week. 

“I’m only 23-years of age so my next step will be the most important one for my development. It will be ADO Den Haag, England or Germany, that’s for sure.”

 Beugelsdijk, whose current contract at the Kyocera Stadion will expire in July, scored four goals in 30 Dutch Eredivisie appearances for ADO Den Haag in 2013/14.

Villa sign Omerovic

Aston Villa have completed the signing of teenage midfielder Anes Omerovic from Austrian side AKA Vorarlberg.

Omerovic, 15, will join the club’s youth academy in July after putting pen to paper on a three-year deal with the English Premier League side.

“It was always my dream to play in England,” the Austria Under-16 international, who operates in defensive midfield, told

“The fact that I’m now going there is just sensational and gorgeous of course.”

Cambiasso to leave Internazionale

FC Internazionale Milano midfielder Esteban Cambiasso will leave the San Siro after 10 years when the transfer window re-opens in July.

The Argentine, 33, joined the Nerazzurri from Real Madrid via free transfer in 2004 and has gone on to make over 400 appearances for the club.

Inter appear to be moving in a younger direction, aside from the signings of Hernanes and Nemanja Vidic, with a number of young stars providing the club’s supporters with hope for a brighter future at the San Siro.

“Cambiasso will not renew his contract because we haven’t offered him a renewal,” said Inter director Piero Ausilio.

“He waited for our decision until now, and for that he must be thanked, but I’m convinced that in his future he’ll have a role at Inter.”

Cambiasso tallied four goals and two assists in 32 appearances for Inter this season.
