Wilfried Bony has admitted that he wants to leave Vitesse "as soon as possible" after suggesting that he may have played his last match for the Arnhem outfit.
The Cote d'Ivoire striker is leading the goalscoring charts in the Netherlands this season and recently took his tally for the campaign to 22, thanks to a hat-trick in Saturday's 5-3 victory over Heracles. The standout performance padded Bony's lead to five goals over Feyenoord's Graziano Pello and Heerenveen's Alfred Finnbogason, who both have 17 goals. American Jozy Altidore is next in the Eredivisie with 16 entering AZ Alkmaar's match with NAC Breda on Sunday.
In a surprise development, Bony, the former Sparta Prague star, claimed that he is ready to leave the club and will waste no time in securing a move away if he is presented with the right offer. Russia's transfer window closes on Wednesday, and Bony is said to have suitors from the country's top flight.
"If I have a chance to leave, I'll do so as soon as possible," Bony told Eredivisie Live. "My agent is in contact with several clubs.
"If I knew who they were, I would have told you. I only know that one of them is a club from Russia. I have maybe played my last match in the Eredivisie."
