Jorrit Hendrix officially returns to the Dutch fields. The 26-year-old midfielder is rented for a year and a half by Feyenoord, which takes him over from Spartak Moscow. Technical director Frank Arnesen has also negotiated an option to purchase during the negotiations. Hendrix is the third winter reinforcement for Feyenoord, which has already secured the arrival of Cole Bassett and Patrik Wälemark.
Recently, Riechedly Bazoer has been associated with Feyenoord. Slot, however, no longer counts on an agreement being reached with Vitesse. Joey Veerman was also in the picture for some time, but he chose to exchange sc Heerenveen for PSV. Feyenoord then switched to Hendrix.
After the away match against NEC by Feyenoord on Sunday, Slot said that he wanted to add another defensive midfielder to his selection this transfer window. “We’ve played for position on the really only one player who can do that and that’s Fredrik Aursnes,” said Slot. Due to the departure of Naoufal Bannis, Christian Conteh and Mark Diemers, the selection is less race, João Teixeira under trainer Arnse Slot cannot be counted on. Just like the earlier Portuguese trio, the midfielder has been given the green light to (temporarily) leave.
Hendrix, a single Dutch national, exchanged PSV for Spartak Moscow a year ago. So far, Hendrix has not yet managed to secure a permanent base place with the current number nine in Russia. Hendrix played 684 minutes for Sparta Moscow, spread over 22 matches in which he scored no goals. Despite the fact that his contract still runs until mid-2024, the midfielder can now leave in the meantime. He is the third winter signing for Feyenoord at Wälemark and Bassett.
