Inter Milan’s Denzel Dumfries will be able to report to the Netherlands camp and should be available for selection ahead of the nation’s opening match against Senegal in the World Cup next week, telegraaf.nl reports.
Dumfries, 26, had to be substituted in the 72nd minute during Inter’s 3-2 win against Atalanta in Serie A due to a knee injury which casted doubt on whether he will feature for Louis van Gaal’s national squad.
Fortunately, according to media reports in Italy, the Serie A side have informed Oranje that his injury is not as bad as first feared and was able to report for international duty earlier today.
Further inspection of Dumfries knee injury will be needed during his arrival in Zeist and before getting the all clear to join his teammates on the training pitch.
The Rotterdam-born defender, with 37 international caps, has been linked with a move away from Inter Milan in recent months with Premier League’s Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur thought to be among those interested.
