Clasie returns to Feyenoord on loan

Having spent 2017-18 at Club Brugge, Jordy Clasie has been loaned out again by Southampton - this time to former club Feyenoord.

Jordy Clasie is thrilled to be back at Feyenoord, where he will spend the 2018-19 campaign on loan from Southampton.

The Netherlands international moved from Feyenoord to St Mary's Stadium in 2015, reuniting with then-Saints boss Ronald Koeman.

But after just 32 Premier League starts across his first two seasons, Clasie was loaned to Club Brugge in 2017-18, and has been deemed surplus to requirements once more by manager Mark Hughes, who was appointed on a full-time basis in May after steering the club away from relegation.

"It feels great to be back again," Clasie told Feyenoord's official website, having started out with the club's academy in 2000 before making his first-team debut in 2011.

"Everyone knows how much this club means to me. I am of course always following Feyenoord and I still know a lot of the guys.

"I'm really looking forward to joining the team quickly and looking forward to my comeback in De Kuip. Playing in that stadium is still magical."
