Serie A star reveals truth over collapsed Newcastle and Everton moves

27 September at 12:05
Sampdoria star Dennis Praet was a transfer target of Newcastle and Everton but both Premier League clubs failed to wrap up a deal for the Belgian who eventually remained at the Marassi.

Praet has a € 25 million release clause but even if any club would have trigger it, Praet would have still chosen to stay in Genoa.

“I didn’t want to leave”, the former Anderlecht star told Belgian paper Humo.

“I thought something would have changed here, I though the manager would have given me a new role. I love this club and the president is a special person. He has a great approach with footballers and that’s a huge difference compared to Anderlecht.”

“I know Sampdoria received some offers for me but I did’t even talk with any other club as there was no agreement between them. I’ve never played in the Premier League but I’d be happy to go there one day. I am grateful to Sampdoria and I want to replay their trust scoring goals and making assists.”
