Dutch club Feyenoord have revealed that they would be interested in taking the former Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt back to Dutch football if the opportunity arose in the summer. The striker is currently playing with Galatasaray, but he is widely expected to leave the club in the summer. Along with the former Liverpool man, Feyenoord are also targeting the potential signing of John Guidetti. If this potential transfer goes through, then it would mark a return to Feyenoord for Guidetti, who last played for the club in the 2011-12 season. During this period, he hit a remarkable 20 goals in just 23 league matches for the club.
Kuyt, meanwhile, represented Feyenoord for a much longer period – from 2003 to 2006. It was in the summer of 2006 that he decided to move to Liverpool. Even though this mountain not reap rich rewards in terms of trophies, the striker managed to find himself in another dimension while playing for Rafa Benitez. After six years at Liverpool during which time he managed just one trophy, Kuyt left the club for Turkish giants Galatasaray. However, he has not been involved much with the Turkish outfit this season after former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini was appointed as the manager.
“At this moment it is not an issue because he has an ongoing contract with Fenerbahce and I understand that he finds it much to his liking over there. He is a guy that we like. Guidetti is always in our mind,” said the Feyenoord sporting director in response to the transfer rumours surrounding Kuyt and Guidetti.
Guidetti maybe a Manchester City player, but he now looks unlikely to return to his parent club after a disappointing loan spell at Stoke City. Kenwyne Jones has been the first-team regular ahead of Guidetti under Mark Hughes.
