Groningen president Hans Nijland has confirmed he has rejected an offer from Roma for the services of winger Dusan Tadic.
The Serie A outfit wanted to land the 23-year-old initially on loan for the remaining months of the season, with the view to tying him down on a permanent deal next summer.
However, when quizzed by RTV/Noord on whether the proposal was successful, Nijland replied: “We can not take this proposal [from Roma] seriously.”
Meanwhile Tadic’s agent has also continued to fuel speculation regarding his client’s future by reportedly naming four other interested parties.
According to Goal.com Netherlands, Zoran Pavlovic, who represents Tadic, claimed that Koln, Wolfsburg, Borussia Monchengladbach, Schalke and Lazio are all keeping tabs on the Serb.
But in response to the agent’s claims, Groningen proceeded to inform the television channel that they have not received an official offer from any of the aforementioned clubs.
Tadic, a left-footed winger, has impressed in the Eredivisie so far this campaign, netting three goals and bagging eight assists in 18 league matches to date, and was also a target of Twente last summer.
