Dutch giants Feyenoord confirm they are interested in John Guidetti and Dirk Kuyt

Feyenoord

One of Holland's biggest clubs has admitted interest in a current Celtic player and a former Liverpool fan favourite.

According to a report from The Scotsman, Dutch side Feyenoord are hoping to sign former Liverpool player Dirk Kuyt and current Celtic loanee John Guidetti in time for next season.

The report includes quotes from the Eredivisie club’s technical director Martin van Geel, where he admitted interest in both players.

“Kuyt is absolutely a potential signing,” he said, “and we’re keeping an eye on Guidetti over the coming months.”

The latter is currently on loan at Celtic from Manchester City, and since his move to Scotland he has scored 13 goals and provided 10 assists in 28 matches.

With that kind of form – and his innate talent – it is no surprise Feyenoord are tracking a player they know well from a hugely successful loan spell.

As for Kuyt, his time in Turkey is coming to an end, with his contract at Fenerbahce expiring this summer, and if the two players ultimately link up in Holland it will be an interesting attacking partnership between the experienced right winger and the young striker.

Guidetti was part of the Celtic squad that enjoyed Scottish League Cup success at the weekend, coming on for the final 21 minutes and setting up the second goal in a 2-0 win.
