Verhoek, 24, has been attracting interest from Championship side Nottingham Forest, but he suggested he would prefer the chance to play at Ibrox.

However, with Rangers seemingly reluctant to pay out big money, it remains to be seen whether a deal will be completed.

"I will only leave here for a big challenge and for me Rangers are a fantastic club, but we aren't there yet as the clubs have still to agree a fee and after that I'll see what happens," he told the Scottish Sun.

"When we return from Cyprus I expect ADO will want to speak to me. Every footballer is ambitious and everyone knows Rangers are a big club."

Rangers initial £1 million bid has been rejected as it falls well short of the £2.6 million Den Haag are asking.
