Eredivisie giants PSV Eindhoven have moved to confirm they are considering a swoop for FC Porto midfielder Steven Defour.
Having failed to mount a serious title challenge in the league last season, the Phillips Stadium outfit hope to make things right next term and they are on the lookout for new players.
The club were recently linked with a move for FC Porto footballer Steven Defour and sporting director Marcel Brands has confirmed the speculation.
“His agent has informed him (of our interest), but we will not attempt to make a move during the World Cup,” Brands said to De Telegraaf.
Having struggled for playing time at Estadio do Dragao, chances are the 26-year-old will be interested in a switch to the Netherlands, although his hefty wage bill could prove to be an obstacle to any deal.
After he was an unused substitute in Belgium’s first two matches at the 2014 World Cup, Defour started the Korea Republic clash, but was sent off just before the half-time break.
As a result, the midfielder is suspended for the USA match, where the Red Devils are 19/20 to win in 90 minutes.
