FC Twente coach Alfred Schreuder has declared that Dušan Tadić’s impending move to Ronald Koeman’s Southampton should be finalised soon.
This past afternoon, Twente defeated Dutch amateur side VV Oldenzaal 14-1 in a pre-season friendly and Tadić was nowhere to be seen. When questioned on his whereabouts, Twente coach Alfred Schreuder, speaking to RTVOost.nl stated that “Everyone knows he is close to an agreement, we did not want to take a chance with him.”
The interviewer then suggested that could the Serbian be moving to Southampton and Schreuder replied: “There is a big chance that will happen”.
It is reported that the fee will be around €12million and the player will sign a four or five year commitment.
It was understood that La Liga side Sevilla were also interested in the winger but have pulled out of the move due to financial reasons.
