Premiership clubs have been put on alert after the Netherlands striker Dirk Kuyt said that he would talk to his agent in the next few days to discuss the possibility of a move from Feyenoord. Liverpool are believed to be one of a host of leading clubs interested in signing the 25-year-old.
"If I am going to leave Feyenoord, I would prefer to make the decision quickly," Kuyt said. "That would be the best thing for everyone. I spoke with my manager [Erwin Koeman] before the World Cup and decided not to do anything until the tournament was over. I will call him in a few days' time to see if there is any interest but I would love to play in England and there are a few clubs I dream about playing for.
"It is not smart to talk about these things but if the right club wanted me I would make the decision."
Kuyt's compatriot, Dick Advocaat, has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract to coach the Russian premier league side Zenit St Petersburg. Advocaat stepped down as South Korea manager after his team were eliminated from the World Cup last week. He will be replaced by his assistant, Pim Verbeek, the former coach of the Netherlands Antilles and Kyoto Purple Sanga in Japan's J-League.Reuse content
