Lagos - Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong has exclusively told News24 he is presently being inundated with lots of interests from clubs after running down his contract with Dutch Eredivisie side, Groningen.
The 21-year had an impressive start to his international career with Nigeria, helping his country keep a clean sheet as they beat Chad 2-0 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday, and he has revealed he will be returning to Europe this week to sort out his future.

“I’ve heard from my agent and there are lot of interests now,” he told News24, “I will return to Europe this week, I’m going to be sorting it (future) out, and in the next two weeks or so, I will know what my options are,” he said.
When pressed to reveal the names of the clubs that have already shown interest, the lanky defender had this to say.
“I can’t go into it now because it’s not how we do the business but like I said there are a few clubs interested.
“In England and in Holland, there are interested clubs there.”
The former Tottenham Hotspur defender played on loan at Dordrecht from Groningen last season, but his contract with the latter has now elapsed, and is set to seal a move elsewhere.
