ADO Den Haag coach Zeljko Petrovic has ruled out a move for his central defender Tom Beugelsdijk in this transfer window. The 26-year-old only returned to the club last year, but has been linked with a move to Leeds United in recent days.
Omroepwest have reported on comments the Serbian coach made to the Dutch media in the lead up to this weekend’s games, when asked about the interest from Leeds United. Petrovic confirmed Beugelsdijk would be staying at the club because he’s become such an important figure in his team.
Petrovic believes the defender will be the standout player for ADO Den Haag this season, and because of his relationship with the fans he expected the player to remain in Holland.
“Tommie remains one hundred percent. I find it almost impossible (that he leaves). He’s become a player of the week, perhaps player of the month and possibly player of the year here in The Hague. He is the cult hero here. I do not think it will happen. Tom would like to stay another year,” said the ADO Den Haag coach.
Only a few days ago it was reported Leeds United were looking to move in on Beugelsdijk before the deadline on Wednesday. Garry Monk has already sent scouts to get the lowdown on the Dutchman, but recent comments from the player and his coach suggest he won’t be arriving in England in this window.
