PSV Eindhoven coach Guus Hiddink has confirmed he will leave the club at the end of the season.

Hiddink has been suggested as a potential successor Sven-Goran Eriksson as England coach, but he has also been linked with Russia.

“There’s nothing concrete now, let alone anything signed,” he admitted.

“I had four great seasons with several successes and maybe two more trophies,” said Hiddink.

“I would lie if I said that deep down inside I don’t know what I’m going to do yet,” added Hiddink,.

PSV have already compiled a list of possible replacements and are thought to be looking at Martin Jol of Tottenham, although the spurs coach has already revealed that he will be staying in England.

“Hiddink is still there, but it is always the same if someone leaves a club like Ajax, Feyenoord or PSV, they all link coaches with Dutch clubs,” said Jol.

“Feyenoord is a big club but in Holland they think of Spurs as a big club. Feyenoord have 50,000 fans on average, PSV is the same. They are a Champions League club.

“I would not be interested in the job. I am focused on this club. This is my first club as a manager and I love this club.

“My plan is to stay here and hopefully improve our football and get the results. Then in the next couple of years we can be as good as the top four clubs in England.”

Hiddink will be in charge of Australia at the World Cup, a position he has held on a part-time basis since July 2005.
