Dutch hotshot set to disappoint Liverpool and Arsenal

AC Milan striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar will not be making the move to England this summer, according to his agent.

Speculation has been rife that the Dutch marksman was set to quit Milan for a move to the Premier League after failing to find his way into the Rossoneri first team.

Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham have all been touted as potential suitors of the 26-year-old, but the agent of the former Ajax goal machine has quashed any rumours linking him with a move away from the San Siro.

“There is no interest from any Premier League clubs. I have read the reports, but these are just rumours. He (Klaas Jan Huntelaar) is happy in Milan and the club are happy with him. Milan want to keep him and he wants to stay,” Arnoldus Oosterveer told

“He will remain at the club this summer.”

Huntelaar first announced himself as a potent goalscorer back in his native Holland, initially with AGOVV Apeldoorn and Heerenveen, before being granted a €9 million transfer to Dutch giants Ajax.

He went on to bag 76 goals in 92 appearances for the Godenzonen before Real Madrid snapped him up on a mega bucks deal.

However, he failed to fulfill the promise he showed in Holland and was subsequently shipped off to Milan less than a year later.

His appearances in Serie A have also been limited, which prompted reports to circulate that he was on the radar of several English clubs – particularly that of Liverpool – and he appeared to offer some hope to those after his signature when he spoke to the press last week.

"The truth is I want to play football - I don't want to be just sitting on the bench - so we will see what happens," Huntelaar explained.

"Of course, the Champions League is important and every player wants to play there but the most important thing for me is simply to play. That is the number one priority.”

But it appears that he will now remain at the Giuseppe Meazza until January at least.
