Five Eredivisie stars who could move to the Premier League
The powerful centre-back has developed into one of the best defenders around in the Eredivisie since his arrival in 2007, and Douglas appears to be more than ready for the next step in his career. The 24-year-old Brazil-born defender was called up for Netherlands’ national side earlier this year after gaining Dutch nationality, but has yet to make his debut for Oranje. Both Fulham and Newcastle United approached him in the summer transfer window, but a move never materialised. With his contract due to expire in June 2013, a transfer seems to be on the cards either in January or at the end of the season.
