Roda JC are interested in signing Canadian Marcel de Jong from Helmond Sport.
De Jong, a Canadian youth international, has impressed watching scouts at Roda enough to tempt the club into making a move for the 19-year-old.
"I expect that both clubs will make an announcement this week," the player's agent Alex Kroes told Voetbal International.
"Marcel really wants to make the step up and I assume Helmond Sport will ask for a reasonable transfer fee."
De Jong has a contract with the Eerste Divisie club until 2008.
