“It was better for all to keep him behind. I think we are in talks with interested clubs; it looks like Calvin is moving on,”Van Bronckhorst told Sky Sports.
“Well, of course, I want to keep Calvin; he’s had incredible development in the last six months, coming from the bench into the team.
“I’m really happy with his performances but also, when you have players who are playing well in the league and Europe, the attention will be there. In the end, everything we do has to be in the best interests of the club.
“The squad is well at the moment. We changed the players who left and got new players in but with Calvin maybe going as well, we have to look for another player to add to the squad.
“We have our list ready. So, once the deal is done, we can work on another player coming in.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
