Both players’ contracts are due for renewal at the end of the season, and were expected to be allowed to leave their current clubs without the offer of new deals, with the pair appearing to be open to a move back to their former side.
However, since Roberto Di Matteo’s appointment as interim Chelsea boss in March, Kalou has featured in every single game after limited exposure under previous boss Andre Villas-Boas.
And Kuyt has featured 40 times for Liverpool, in all competitions, this season and the recent dismissal of sporting director Damien Comolli has raised rumours that the Dutchman could stay beyond the end of the current campaign after all.
Speaking to Dutch TV show Nieuwsuur, Kalou said: "For me Feyenoord is number 1.
“Dirk said to me that I also must come, that we both have to return to Feyenoord. but I want to stay another few years here. After that Feyenoord is an option.
“Dirk told me he wants to return now."
Kalou has recently been linked with a move to the likes of Tottenham, with Hamburg reportedly interested in Kuyt.
