thumbnail Hello,

The Eredivisie giants have made it clear that the there is only a very slim chance to see the Dutchman return to De Kuip at this point due to financial reasons

Feyenoord sporting director Martin van Geel has stated that Dirk Kuyt is unlikely to leave Liverpool for the Eredivisie giants at the end of the season.

The Rotterdam side have earmarked the attacker as the perfect replacement for on-loan star John Guidetti, who is expected to return to Manchester City this summer. Van Geel admitted, however, that financial issues complicate matters.

"Dirk would fit in really well here, and we would love to see him return this summer. However, our chances of re-signing him this summer are very slim," Van Geel stated to Eredivisie Live.

"Even if we manage to qualify for the Champions League, that will not increase our budget for new players. We don't include income from European games in our budget, so we can't afford any big expenses."

The 31-year-old Kuyt has also been linked with clubs such as Roma and Hamburg in the past few months.
