Manchester United and Tottenham warned off January bid for PSV's Memphis Depay

PSV Eindhoven

PSV winger Memphis Depay won't be moving to the Premier League in January, insists manager Phillip Cocu.

PSV Eindhoven has warned the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur not to waste their time with a bid for star man Memphis Depay this winter.

Depay’s future at PSV has been the subject of on-going speculation following his impressive performances for Louis van Gaal’s Netherlands side at the World Cup, with the winger since linked to a host of top European clubs.

While a move failed to materialise over the summer, rumours of a potential reunion with Van Gaal at Manchester United in January have remained rampant, while Tottenham are also said to be among the most interested parties.

PSV manager Phillip Cocu admitted just last month that the Eredivisie club had little chance of holding onto the 20-year-old international for the long-term, but insists that none of his players are looking for a mid-season move.

"They all want to stay. I find that is the feeling in the group,” he told Dutch outlet Votebal International.

Added technical director Marcel Brands: "I do not expect anything to happen in the winter."

Depay, in the meantime, has scored an impressive 13 goals in 16 total appearances this season, with his excellent form helping propel PSV to the top of the Eredivise table, one point ahead of Ajax with a game in hand.

With the club therefore determined not to sell in the coming transfer window, a move in the summer appears to be in the waiting.

"Of course, Memphis will be sold. You will not be able to stop it, but it does not matter," Cocu told Dutch magazine Helden in November. "It was nice to be able to form a player like him. I am also glad he stayed with us this season.

"It is important for him to play as many as 50 times in one season before making a big decision [to move to another club]. He can be better than [he is] now. He is very explosive."
