Saints Dutch Star Desperate To Move !
Friday, 17th Nov 2017 08:22
Not the first time that this headline has been used in the last six months, but where he has told the Dutch Media he would like to go is the big surprise.
Jordie Clasie has told the Dutch media he is desperate to leave St Mary's and that a move to his previous club Feyenoord would be the ideal move for him.
Clasie found hmself persona non gratis in the second half of last season despite a couple of impressive displays when Claude Puel did play him after January and this season has found himself surplus to requirements and on loan at Brugge in Belgium.
He has fared no better there and played only three times, which is a sad story for a player who found his career at St Mary's jinxed from the very start due to injury.
Saints could therefore look to sell him in January and he is hoping that Feyenoord might be interested in taking him back, indeed he wanted to go there at the start of the season but found that the move was not on the cards, but he is hoping that maybe next summer it will.
”I was very eager to be loaned back to Feyenoord,” he said in an interview with RTV Rijnmond.
”I sought to get in contact with them, and was ready to take a pay cut to join them.
”But Feyenoord didn’t want me. I still hope to go back and maybe it can happen next season.”

Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.
