Alfreð Finnbogason disappointed with Heerenveen over Fulham snub

alfred finnbogaIcelandic striker Alfreð Finnbogason has spoken of his disappointment that his club Heerenveen turned down an offer from English Premier League side Fulham.

According to reports, Fulham, who are stuck at the bottom of the league after a disappointing run of results, offered £8m for the highly sought after forward, but the Dutch club were not interested in parting with their man.

However, Alfreð has since said he was left frustrated by Heerenveen as they had agreed to let him talk to any club that offered €10m for him. He said that he is disappointed as he feels his club has not cooperated and now he has been denied the chance to play in England.

The 24-year-old has been in fine form this season and is top scorer in Holland’s Eredivise with 20 goals. This has led to a host of clubs being linked with him, including Premier League sides Everton and Newcastle and Italian side Roma.

Fulham were particularly busy in the January transfer window as they attempted to make the signings to help them avoid relegation. They agreed deals to bring in Olympiakos striker Konstantinos Mitroglou as well as Dutch defender Johnny Heitinga among others.
