Vitesse striker Mike Havenaar has attracted interest from a number of English clubs, claims the Dutch side's technical director Ted van Leeuwen.

The 26-year old netted 11 times in the Eredivisie last season, often playing alongside Swansea City's summer signing Wilfried Bony.

Havenaar has established himself as a part of Japan's national team in recent years, and van Leeuwen admitted that the striker has caught the eye of several Premier League sides.

"There have been a couple of agents who contacted us," he told Dutch magazine Voetbal International.

"They told us they were working for English clubs. I have told them they could send in a mail or fax on the writing paper of that specific club. After it I haven't heard anything more.

"Mike is a member of the national team of Japan. It's logical that clubs are interested.

"Is he for sale? Everyone is, but we don't want to see him going.

"However, the market is still open for another month and we also have other options to fill in."
