Babel eyes Premier League move
Fulham winger Ryan Babel has put Premier League teams on high alert by revealing he wants to stay in England this summer.
The Netherlands international plans to leave Fulham in the coming months after their relegation was confirmed following the defeat to Watford on April 2.
Babel moved to Craven Cottage from Besiktas in January and has scored four goals and provided three assists during that time.
Interim Fulham coach Scott Parker had hoped he would stay with them in the Championship but Babel believes he needs to be playing at the top level to keep his place in the Holland squad for Euro 2020.
"I am at the stage where I have to make the right decision for my family and the future," he told the Daily Mirror.
"I have enjoyed playing back in the Premier League and I need to play top-flight football next season to be playing at the Euros if we qualify.
"I still think I have two or three years ahead of me and of course if I have the opportunity to stay in the Premier League, that would great. Staying in the Premier League would be my first choice.
"But at the same time, there has to be interest and, at the moment, there is not."
