Anthony Limbombe hints at future move to top Dutch side

The Belgian winger was heavily linked with Leeds United in the summer.

Leeds United were linked with a long list of players throughout the summer. One such player was Anthony Limbombe.

The 21-year-old winger was one of many options considered to fill the wide positions at Leeds as Uwe Rosler was adamant on playing a 4-3-3.

It was reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post that Leeds had a £1.5 million bid for the attacker rejected by his club NEC Nijmegen and that Leeds would not meet the fee being asked.

In the end they gave up and moved on, signing Jordan Botaka instead before bringing in Will Buckley on loan from Sunderland.

Now Limbombe has been talking about his future in the Dutch press - and a move to Leeds does not seem to be on his mind.

He is quoted by Voetbal Zone as stating:

"My older brother has played with PSV. Jong PSV. Beautiful club that is. Feyenoord also has some. Rotterdam is really such a beautiful city. But the Netherlands is also a country with a playing style that suits me. The mentality suits me. Offensively, with initiative.

"And who knows, maybe next summer a Dutch club."

It would therefore seem that Limbombe has his eyes on a move to the likes of Ajax, PSV Eindhoven or Feyenoord rather than Leeds and with Rosler gone it is not known just how much interest Leeds will actually still have in the player.

It doesn't look like it matters anyway.
