Leandro Bacuna Looking For Big Move?
Posted by Featured Articles | Published on March 27, 2016
Aston Villa’s wing-back Leandro Bacuna has told a Dutch Broadcasters NOS that he is looking to move in the next couple of years and has sights set on a return to the Netherlands.
The recently capped Curacao international Bacuna, 24, who I said in the other day could be crucial to Villa’s promotion chances next season, looks to be set on a move to a team which plays Champions League football, despite signing a long term contract with his current employers earlier this season.
Bacuna told NOS “Within two years now I try to make my next move. Where this is going to be, I don’t know at the moment, but I want to grow in two years.”
“That does not necessarily have to be in England.
“Ajax or PSV? I think so. If you look at those clubs, they play Champions League football almost every year. If you do you get a chance, why not?”
Bacuna joined Aston Villa from FC Groningen in 2013 on the same day they also signed defender Jores Okore. Bacuna, who only cost the club a small 850,000 pounds still goes down as one of ex-manager Paul Lambert’s greatest swoops, especially in the first season, where the Curacaoan scored 5 times in the league. However, in the last two seasons Bacuna has only managed 2 goals, with only one of them being in the league; earlier this season against Stoke City.
Will Bacuna be playing Champions League or Championship football next season?
