PSV technical director John de Jong has responded to speculation over the future of Donyell Malen, who is said to be the subject of interest from Borussia Dortmund among others.


Sport Bild reported yesterday that Dortmund have already agreed personal terms with the player, but that the Bundesliga outfit are yet to find an agreement with PSV.

Per the German publication, Dortmund are willing to pay €25 million for the 22-year-old, but PSV are demanding €30 million.

In an interview with Voetbal International (via BVB Buzz), de Jong spoke about Malen and Denzel Dumfries, who is also been linked with a move away from the Dutch club.

He confirmed that Malen and his agent, Mino Raiola, have been given permission to talk to other clubs, but claimed that PSV have received no bids for the Dutch international.

"We are being kept informed by Mino Raiola. They know what we want and we have given these players the space to go and talk to interested clubs. If they reach an agreement, then the respective club will contact us," said de Jong.

"At the moment we haven't received any concrete offers. But that can of course change very quickly. The chance that they both leave is of course very high."
