Southampton midfielder Jordy Clasie has told the Dutch media, he can kick start his career at Feyenoord after the struggles he’s had in the past two seasons.

This summer the Dutchman was loaned out to Feyenoord for the season.

Speaking to Voetbal International, the Southampton player said on his move back to the Netherlands: “I can once again be a footballer and play, this is especially what I’ve really missed in recent years. The first year at Southampton, under Ronald Koeman, that was okay.

“The following season, when Koeman left: three completed Premier League games and a couple in the cup and in the Europa League.”

Clasie signed for Southampton from Feyenoord in 2015 for £8m, and in his debut season in England he played over twenty league games for the Premier League club under Koeman. The Dutch coach had brought him through at Feyenoord.

However, when Koeman left for Everton the next season, Claise’s appearances became limited under Claude Puel in the Premier League.

Subsequently he was loaned out to Club Brugge in the last campaign and now he gets another chance at his former club.

Clasie is still contracted to Southampton for another two seasons.
