Adekanye aims to leave Anfield, back to Eredivisie

Nigerian-born Bobby Adekanye has insisted that he is keen on leaving Liverpool this summer, as he aims to keep his options alive in the transfer market.

After failing to sign a deal with Italy's SS Lazio in the January transfer window, Football Live reported that Adekanye is set to make his way back to The Netherlands.

However, Adekanye who Lazio deal fell due to alleged controversies with Rome-based club's clearance for the player, will now be looking to secure a deal in the Dutch Eredivisie. 

Adekanye, who is currently on international duty with Holland’s under-20 squad, said he is prepared to return to his country of birth when he comes off contract in June.

He added: “I spoke to a few guys who are now playing in the Eredivisie and making minutes.

“They told me that the level is good for young players, so that’s advice I can take with me.

“I can now think about that. I watch the Eredivisie a lot, it looks good and I think it could be a good step to return to the Netherlands.

“I can go to a big club and gain experience there, just play a little fewer minutes. Or I go to a smaller club and make more minutes there.

“I think that I am ready to play somewhere in a first team. That will be a big step because I have not played professional football yet.

“I have trained with big players, but have not yet played a match and that is not the same.

“But that is one of the options. I have to make a decision about that. So, we’ll see which one I am going to take.”
