The Norwegian, who had a spell at Manchester United earlier in his career but failed to make the breakthrough at Old Trafford, claims the Cottagers want him to aid their fight against relegation but Groningen are reluctant to let him go.
Nevland told Dagblad van het Noorden: "It has always been my dream to play in the Premier League. This the chance of my life. I understand that it is a difficult decision for FC Groningen to let me go, but I am 31 in 2008."
