PSV have endured a turbulent period in its playing roster recently with Dries Mertens, Erik Pieters and Jeremain Lens all departing the Philips Stadium.

And according to Sky Sports, the club, hoping to build its campaign for the upcoming season off the back of Strootman, refuses to let the Dutch international head towards the exit door.

But Strootman said his career may soon experience a change of scenery, revealing a number of clubs had contacted PSV about his availability.

"There are several clubs interested but only when they reach an agreement with PSV do I come into the picture," he told Voetbal International.

"This is not to say that any are in the world's top six.

"There is also interest from Russia, but that is not an option for me. I do not make hasty decisions about my future.

"The opinion of Holland coach Louis van Gaal is also very important with the World Cup in Brazil next year."
