Kuyt looks for Premiership switch

Liverpool target Dirk Kuyt has revealed his desire to move to a Premiership club this summer, with a number of English clubs said to be interested in the Dutch international.

After Holland’s controversial exit out of the World Cup to Portugal on Sunday night, Kuyt is now looking to his career and it is thought that his current club Feyenoord are prepared to let the 25-year-old go for around £10million.

Reds manager Rafael Benitez is said to be very interested in bringing Kuyt to Anfield to join striker Craig Bellamy to signed for the club from Blackburn Rovers last week. He is viewed as the ideal replacement for the departing Djibril Cisse.

Kuyt revealed on Monday, “If I am going to leave Feyenoord, I would prefer to make the decision quickly. That would be the best thing for everyone.

“I spoke with my manager, Erwin Koeman, before the World Cup and decided not to do anything until it was over.”

It is thought Liverpool face competition from Arsenal, Newcastle and Tottenham for the Dutchman’s signature.
