Afellay: Premier League target
Ibrahim Afellay is set to depart PSV Eindhoven in the January transfer window after the midfielder refused to sign a new deal.
Afellay's current contract expires at the end of the season but the Dutch giants are prepared to sell the 24-year-old in the next window with plenty of big clubs lining up to buy him.
The Holland international has spent his whole career at the Philips Stadion neeting an impressive 41 goals to date.
The attacking midfielder is also a firm fixture in Bert van Marwijk's national squad making a number of appearances during the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa.
A statement on the club's official website read: "PSV and Ibrahim Afellay have jointly concluded that, for several reasons, it is unrealistic to have his contract extended.
"Afellay has pledged to make every effort to ensure he would not leave PSV without a reasonable fee for the club."
The Utrecht born player, who scored his first international goals with a brace in the 4-1 Euro 2012 qualifying win over Sweden in Amsterdam last week, has already been linked with a move to Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Bayern Munich or Juventus.
