In-form Nottingham Forest owned striker Lars Veldwijk admits he would consider China or Dubai switch this summer

The Dutch striker has been in great form in Holland and would consider the Far or Middle East in the summer.

Nottingham Forest outcast Lars Veldwijk has been discussing his future this week, admitting he would be tempted into a move to the Middle East or China – whilst also claiming he could have headed to China before signing for Nottingham Forest.

The Dutchman was speaking to ELF Voetbal, as quoted by Voetbal Zone, when he had this to say about a potential move East this summer:

“Anyone can say ‘why would you want to go to China or Dubai?’ But if you were you to have a contract with a salary of one-and-a-half million (euros) presented to you, would not you be interested?

"If such an opportunity comes along, I would think about it anyway."

"(I could have gone to China instead of Forest) but I thought it was not the right time to go."

Chinese football in particular is on the rise at the moment and Forest would certainly be hoping that they get a chance to cash in on the Dutchman with a sale to the Chinese Super League.

It may never have happened for Veldwijk at Nottingham Forest, but the big front-man is having a great time out on loan in the Dutch Eredivisie.

The 2014 summer signing from Excelsior joined PEC Zwolle at the start of the season and has scored an impressive 13 goals and set up a further nine in 28 appearances for the Dutch club this term.

Veldwijk has not enjoyed his time at Forest. He scored no goals in 14 appearances for the club last season but is showing his worth with Zwolle – who are also keen on his signature.

Forest may decide to keep him on next season. But if not, they could surely get a good deal on their outcast front-man.
