According to Voetbal International, the Saints have expressed a firm interest in 21-year-old Veerman.
Ralph Hasenhüttl has still not replaced Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Veerman has emerged as a candidate to fill the position.
Veerman’s good performances have not gone unnoticed and an unnamed Spanish team are also interested.
In Heerenveen’s first three games of the new Eredivisie season, Veerman has bagged two goals and one assist.
Veerman won’t come cheap
The Dutch youth international renewed his contract until 2024 earlier in the summer, putting Heerenveen in a strong bargaining position.
Their plan has been for Veerman to spend another year at the Abe Lenstra Stadium before making a big move.
Veerman is relaxed about the situation and is happy to stay, but would not want to miss out on a big opportunity.
Heerenveen did not include a release clause in Veerman’s new deal and would demand a big fee.
