Feyenoord ‘trump’ Chelsea and Manchester City in the battle to sign Ghanaian youngster Karim Dermane, according to reports.

The 17-year-old is currently with Ghanaian side West African Football Academy [WAFA] Sporting Club and has managed to attract the attention of clubs across Europe.

Back in September, Feyenoord Transfermarkt stated the midfielder underwent a trial with the Eredivisie side. There was no mention whether or not he visited the training facilities of the Blues and the Premier League winners.

It was also explained the Dutch club were looking at the talented teenager for the winter market.

A month later, the young player told FT about the possibility of moving to Rotterdam. He said: “I am waiting for the club. I am patient to make the right decision. Feyenoord is a good club, one family. I really like the club, seriously! Let’s wait for what is going to happen.”

There has been a new development in this case and according to the latest report from Feyenoord Transfermarkt, Dermane is currently in Rotterdam. It’s claimed he has already cleared his medical tests and is expected to sign a contract with Feyenoord.

Feyenoord are set to sign the young midfielder from Ghana and have beaten the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Red Bull Salzburg in the process.
