Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder has said he will not be pressured into making a decision over his future.

Sneijder, 28, is expected to leave Inter during the winter transfer window, with the Dutchman having not played for his current club since September. Liverpool and Tottenham have been credited with an interest.

Turkish side Galatasaray have had a bid accepted for Sneijder, although the midfielder is yet to decide whether to accept the contract on offer.

"All players on the move in this transfer window must decide what to do and where to go by the end of January. I'll do the same," Sneijder told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I am in no hurry and I don't want to rush this decision."

Sneijder, who helped Inter claim a memorable Treble in 2010, stressed the destination of his next move will not be determined by money.

"After what has happened in the last few months, in the context of having made football history with my team-mates, well, I don't want to feel pressured," he said.

"After what I did, I don't want to feel this way - practically obliged to make such an important step in my life in a short space of time. It's not a money matter."
