Tottenham-linked Jean-Paul Boetius ends contract negotiations with Feyenoord, summer exit likely

Feyenoord, De Kuip

Tottenham have been linked with a move for Boetius, and he is almost certain to leave Feyenoord this summer.

Boetius is considered one of the best talents in the Eredivisie, but his future is looking to be away from the Netherlands following a Voetbal International report claiming that his departure is planned for this summer.

Tottenham have long held an interest in the 21-year-old winger, who has one cap at international level with the Netherlands, and the Mail claimed that the Lilywhites were planning a move for him in January.

Nothing came of that interest, but it is expected that they will revive their transfer plans this summer, especially now that Boetius looks to be on the market for a cut-price fee.

The youngster, who has scored 20 goals and assisted 17 in 96 games for Feyenoord, has a contract at De Kuip which expires next summer. The Eredivisie outfit have been in talks with him for the past few weeks attempting to agree a new deal, but the new VI report claims that negotiations have ended as no contract could be agreed.

It is now believed that his exit this summer is all-but guaranteed, as Feyenoord push to sell him rather than losing him for a free next year.

The winger is a real prospect who would add talent to class to Tottenham’s squad, and Boetius’s availability is a real boost for the North London club in their transfer plans this summer.
