Depay aware of speculation

PSV winger Memphis Depay has told the Dutch media that he is aware of speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League, but says his future is on hold until after the World Cup.

The 20-year-old, who has netted twice as a substitute for Holland in Brazil, has been reported as a target for the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham, as well as Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Depay is regarded as one of the brightest prospects in Dutch football and is proving his worth this summer, coming off the bench to net the winner in Holland's 3-2 victory over Australia before adding the second as they beat Chile 2-0 in Group B.

Although Depay admits he has seen some of the rumours surrounding his future, he says he would not consider a move until Holland's World Cup campaign is over.

"Of course I've read that Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are interested. But no more than that," he told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad.

"I'll see later. My agent Kees Ploegsma is here [in Brazil] too, but we are not talking about that kind of stuff. That is for after the World Cup."

Asked if there was a possibility or staying in the Eredivisie with PSV, Depay replied: "I don't rule that out.

"I've not become a champion with PSV. The fact is that people now ask me what I'm going to do and I understand that. But now, it's the World Cup."
