Noni Madueke says that he rejected the chance to join Chelsea or Manchester United before moving to PSV Eindhoven.

PSV Eindhoven attacker Noni Madueke has said that he rejected the chance to join Chelsea or Manchester United when he left Tottenham Hotspur.

The 19-year-old came through the youth system at Spurs, captaining the London club's Under-18s, but decided to make the move to the Netherlands in June 2018.

Madueke is now believed to be a target for a number of major European clubs, having found the back of the net on 15 occasions in 50 appearances for PSV in all competitions.

The Englishman has revealed that he turned down the chance to join either Chelsea or Man United as he wanted to "progress quicker into the first team".

"Chelsea, Manchester United, a lot of European clubs [made offers]," Madueke told BBC Sport. "I came here one time and as soon as I came I wanted to sign straight away. I knew going from Tottenham to United is pretty much the same thing.

"The reason I wanted to go was to progress quicker into the first team. PSV is a top European club. It made so much sense at the time and it makes sense now."

Madueke still has four years left to run on his contract with the Red and Whites.
