Dutch international Royston Drenthe reveals “I had a deal with Juventus, but Hercules wouldn't release me.”
The former Real Madrid winger has repeatedly been linked with a Serie A switch to Juve, Milan or Inter.
“I am sad because the club wouldn't let me go,” commented the 23-year-old after transfer deadline day.
“Juventus wanted me and I had a deal, but Hercules wouldn't release me. As a good professional, I will now give my all for this team.
“However, if they keep me in the stands then I cannot show my worth.”
