Vitesse Arnhem striker Wilfried Bony says he is open to a move after revealing other clubs are keeping tabs on him.

The Ivory Coast international netted a hat-trick against Heerenveen at the weekend to take his Eredivisie goal tally this season to eight.

The 23-year-old was linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer and says he would be willing to leave the Gelredome.

"I know that clubs follow me," Bony told reporters following Saturday's 3-3 draw.

"But as long as nobody is officially reported at Vitesse, I can say little about my future.

"The club knows that I am open to a departure, but there must be serious interest for me."

Vitesse paid Sparta Prague £4million for Bony's services in the January transfer window and the striker has repaid the Dutch side with 28 goals in 44 league starts.

The 23-year-old's deal runs until 2015 and Heerenveen coach Marco van Basten, who himself had a stellar career with Ajax and AC Milan, was full of praise after watching Bony's treble.

He said: "An excellent footballer. A smart player, but also without possession."
