Edgar Davids could be heading for The Premiership as he wants to stay abroad.
Edgar Davids could be heading for The Premiership after telling AZ Alkmaar he wants to spend more time abroad.
The dynamic Internazionale midfielder is looking to leave the Neroazzurri and has been targeted by both AZ and former club Ajax.
AZ director of football Martin van Geel has admitted defeat in his pursuit of the experienced Holland international.
"Edgar let us know he wants to play one or two more seasons abroad," van Geel informed De Telegraaf.
"So he won't come to AZ within a short time."
Davids has a long-standing admiration of English football and would be tempted by another bumper pay-day at this stage of his distinguished career.
The 32-year-old has been closing to joining Premiership clubs on a number of occasions and will have no shortage of suitors if he decides to target a switch to the United Kingdom.
"I don't exclude anything for the future," he said last month.
