Feyenoord would be willing to sign Jordy Clasie permanently this summer if the midfielder is allowed to depart Southampton on a free transfer.

According to a report from Dutch news outlet Voetbal International, as cited by Football Oranje, the Eredivisie giants are interested in signing the 27-year-old, but only if his contract at St Mary’s Stadium is terminated. 

Clasie hasn’t had the desired impact at Southampton following his £8 million move from Feyenoord in the summer of 2015.

After playing sporadically under Ronald Koeman and Claude Puel, he was loaned to Belgian Pro League outfit Club Brugge for the 2017/18 season and temporarily made the switch back to his former club for the ongoing campaign.

The Netherlands international recently found himself in hot water at De Kuip after refusing to shake manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s hand and throwing his shirt down in frustration as he was substituted in the team’s 2-1 win against Heracles.

However, Jaap Stam is arriving at Feyenoord from PEC Zwolle this summer, and it seems Clasie could feature in his plans for next season.
