Feyenoord skipper Stefan de Vrij has cooled talk of a January move to England.

De Vrij has been linked with Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal in recent weeks, but says watching his predecessor Ron Vlaar move to Aston Villa makes him realise he's not ready for such a step up.

"It's nice to hear such big clubs are interested in you. But I'm not making a transfer. When you see how strong Vlaar was when he left, then I still need some time," confessed De Vrij.
