Gregory van der Wiel has told Sky Sports that he will leave Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer window.
"I have always given my best to secure my spot in the squad,” the Netherlands international told Sky Sports regarding the competition for the right-back spot with Serge Aurier and Marquinhos. “If that fails, it's okay. But it is a sign that there is no confidence in me when I'm second choice.”
"I felt really bad about it at the time,” added Van der Wiel. “I was very disappointed and felt embarrassed because I do possess the quality to play Champions League matches.”
Bad news for Swansea City and West Ham United?
According to Le10sport.com, both Swansea and West Ham want to secure the services of the right-back ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.
The Hammers narrowly missed out on a top-four spot in the Premier League this past season, while Swansea did not even finish in the top 10.
Since the Dutchman believes that he can play in the Champions League and neither of the two Premier League clubs (reportedly) interested in him can offer him that, it does not look very likely that they will get him in the summer.
