Liverpool ace keen on Feyenoord move

Dirk Kuyt wants to leave Liverpool this summer and return to former club Feyenoord, according to former team-mate Salomon Kalou.

The ageing forward has played on Merseyside since leaving the Eredivisie outfit back in 2006, but with first-team opportunities becoming limited, has eyed a return to his homeland.

Kalou, who played with Kuyt at Feyenoord, admits that his friend’s time in England may well be nearing an end.

“Dirk told me he wants to return now,” the Chelsea forward told Dutch reporters, translated to English by Mirror Football.

“Dirk said to me that I also must come, that we both have to return to Feyenoord.”

The Netherlands international will not command a sizeable transfer fee, and it is thought that Kuyt has a release clause in his contract that allows him to join a foreign club for just £1million.

Meanwhile, Joe Cole looks set to return to Anfield after Lille’s president admitted that they cannot afford to sign him permanently.

The attacking midfielder has spent a season on loan with the Ligue 1 champions this term, and has previously stated that he wants to stay in France, but this looks unlikely.

“Joe Cole has spoken and I thought it was great,” Michel Seydoux admitted.

“It’s rare that an English player comes to France and says he wants to continue.

“A discussion has been held. Money is an issue,” he confessed.

Cole is said to earn £90,000-a-week currently with Liverpool.
