Nottingham Forest striker Lars Veldwijk admits desire to remain at PEC Zwolle

The Dutchman has been in good form at Zwolle.

Nottingham Forest striker Lars Veldwijk had an eventful weekend.

The Dutch striker was in action against AZ Alkmaar for his current loan club PEC Zwolle yesterday in a game that ended up turning into a comfortable 5-1 thrashing for AZ.

Zwolle were already 3-1 down when goalkeeper Mickey van der Hart was sent off. With Zwolle having used all of their substitutes they turned to Veldwijk.

Speaking after the game the Forest striker has now confirmed that he would like to remain at PEC Zwolle next season, but understands the club may not have the finances to bring him in.

He told Goal after his very eventful fixture against AZ Alkmaar this weekend:

The situation surrounding my future has not changed, so I have no idea what will happen.

"I have said that I very much want to stay in the Netherlands. Zwolle is of course an option for me.

He had spoken about his future already this week.

He told De Peperbus that he was sure he would be leaving Forest just a few weeks ago but now believes he might stay at the club after Dougie Freedman’s sacking:

"Until three weeks ago, it was sure that I would be sold, but then the coach was fired.

"Now I do not know if the club and if the new coach wants me there."

"But I imagine that I will get a nice offer from China. Then, it will also be difficult for me to say no. "

Whoever does take over at Forest will certainly be tempted to give Veldwijk a chance up top. The Dutchman has been in great form at Zwolle this season, scoring 13 goals in 31 games.
