Advocaat: Toivonen worth €14m

The versatile attacker feels the club's asking price is too high, but their new head coach feels he's worth the money, and is hopeful the forward won't leave
PSV coach Dick Advocaat feels that the Eredivisie side's €14 million asking price for Ola Toivonen is not unrealistic as he believes the Sweden international is worth the money.

The attacking midfielder recently voiced his dismay with the Eindhoven outfit's hefty financial demands as he has set his sights on a move away from PSV, but his current club seem to have no intention to lower their price tag.

"Toivonen is worth €14m. With all due respect, but if Ajax receive €8,5m for Vurnon Anita, and Twente get €15m or so for Luuk de Jong, then Ola is wort that much, too," Advocaat stated to reporters.

"I hope that he will not leave PSV this summer. If he has one more great season, he can move to a really big club next year."

Toivonen has developed into a key player at PSV since joining them from Malmo in January 2009. His current contract with the Eindhoven side runs until June 2014.
