Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham have all been put on alert after Feyenoord defender Stefan de Vrij confirmed he is likely to be on the move this summer.

The 22-year-old has a burgeoning reputation as one of the most promising young defenders in Europe after helping his side to the Eredivisie title - which in turn helped him earn a spot at the World Cup with the Netherlands.

Along with Manchester United and Liverpool, Spurs are also said to be interested in the centre-back.

Speaking ahead of the World Cup which gets underway later this month, De Vrij admitted he is likely to be playing for a new club after the tournament's conclusion.

"The chances are that I will leave, I can probably confirm this," he told RTV Rijnmond.

“I am with the Dutch national team so I don’t know the exact details."

Manchester United may have the upper hand in the battle to sign the youngster because of his relationship with Dutch boss Louis van Gaal, who will take over at Old Trafford after the World Cup.

Liverpool meanwhile have problems at the back and could undergo a major reshuffle; Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel have been linked with moves away from Anfield, while Tiago Illori could spend next season on loan too.

Spurs are likely to have a spot to fill at the back if Jan Vertonghen leaves - although the Belgian insists he's happy at White Hart Lane.
