Everton's Royston Drenthe keen to rejoin Feyenoord before end of career

The Toffees winger has endured a frustrating loan spell on Merseyside and insists that he would be keen on returning to the club with whom he started his career
Everton winger Royston Drenthe has expressed his desire to return to former side Feyenoord at some point in his career.

The Dutchman made his breakthrough at the club before joining Spanish giants Real Madrid after several impressive showings in the 2007 Under-21 European Championships.

After a bright start to life at the Santiago Bernabeu, however, he quickly fell out of favour and has since had loan spells at Hercules and now with the Toffees.

But he has insisted that he would one day like to return to Feyenoord and would prefer it to be before his career comes too near its end.

He told NUSport: "I certainly will [play there] once again. They're doing well again.

"When? At least by 2015. I still want to have some explosiveness on the pitch. I won't return to sit on the bench."

Drenthe has made 14 appearances for Everton this season, scoring twice and notching seven assists.
