Pierre van Hooijdonk's son Sydney wanted by four Championship clubs as Bologna striker targets transfer to England | The Sun

SYDNEY VAN HOOIJDONK is wanted by four Championship clubs.

The Dutch striker, 22, is the son of ex-Nottingham Forest and Celtic forward Pierre, and has attracted interest from Stoke, Swansea, Cardiff and Millwall.

Clubs in the Netherlands and Belgium are also monitoring van Hooijdonk's situation.

Van Hooijdonk is contracted to Serie A Bologna but has had a loan spell at Eredivisie side Heerenveen, where he scored seven goals in 18 appearances this season.

He also netted seven times in 15 matches in the Netherlands in his initial loan with the same club in the second half of last season.

But van Hooijdonk is now keen on a move to England with a loan in the January window.

It is likely that there will be the possibility of an option to buy.

The forward is out of contract with Bologna in the summer of 2025.

Forest and Sheffield Wednesday have previously looked at van Hooijdonk junior.

Dad Pierre fired Forest to promotion in the 1997-98 season before infamously going on strike at the City Ground.
