Jean-Paul Boetius discusses his future, doesn’t rule out leaving Feyenoord


The Feyenoord winger has been linked to Tottenham Hotspur recently.

Speaking to Voetbal International, Jean-Paul Boetius has discussed his future amid rumours that he could be leaving Feyenoord this summer.

The winger said: “I do not know if this will be my last season. I hear that talks begin with Feyenoord again, so we'll see. I'm not going to make promises I can not keep me, that does not seem sensible to me. You know that negotiations do not always go smoothly. The fact that I do not always play does not factor into whether I stay or not.”

Although he is very non-committal on his future, his comments suggest that a summer exit from De Kuip is still likely.

The Daily Mail linked the 21-year-old winger to Spurs towards the end of last season, when it appeared as if his future was to lie away from Feyenoord. The youngster’s playing situation was under threat - losing his place in starting selections as the campaign wore on - and with just one year left on his contract he was considering his future.

The recent report states that Feyenoord are set to open negotiations with him, as they do not want to lose Boetius on a free transfer next summer, and the winger himself is aware that talks will start soon.

However, he has yet to confirm whether he is willing to accept an offer placed towards him. As Spurs have yet to make a formal approach for the winger he is likely to sign a new contract, but if the Lilywhites start making concrete noises about signing Boetius this summer, he may just hold off the deal to secure a move to the Premier League.
