Former Liverpool star Dirk Kuyt to return to Feyenoord next summer - report

Former Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt has agreed to join Feyenoord next summer when his current contract with Fenerbahce comes to an end.

Former Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt will return to his old club Feyenoord next summer, according to a report in the Turkish media.

Turkish daily Milliyet claims that the Netherlands international has agreed a deal in principle with the Dutch giants to sign for them at the end of the current season.

Kuyt’s current contract with Fenerbahce runs out on June 30, 2015, at which time he will be almost 35 years of age. A return to Feyenoord will see the ex-Liverpool star play the final years of his career in the Eredivisie.

Despite being 34 years of age, Kuyt still remains an important player for both club and country. Having joined Turkish powerhouse Fenerbahce from Liverpool in the summer of 2012, he has won the Turkish Cup and the Super Lig in his two years at Istanbul outfit.

Kuyt was also part of the Netherlands team that reached the semi-finals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil in July, and remains a key figure in the Oranje squad under new coach Guus Hiddink.

The former Utrecht star played for Feyenoord between 2003 and 2006, during which time he established himself as one of the best players in the Dutch top flight.

Kuyt’s most successful period in his career (on a personal level) came at Liverpool, for whom he played from 2006 until 2012.

The 34-year-old won the League Cup with the Reds in 2012, and helped them reach the finals of the FA Cup in 2012 and the Champions League in 2007.
