Feyenoord stopper signs new deal.
Young Feyenoord defender Stefan de Vrij is to frustrate Manchester United and Liverpool by agreeing a new deal to stay at the club, talkSPORT reports.
The 21-year-old is highly rated across Europe and had been on the radar of a number of clubs after taking over the captaincy from Ron Vlaar after he left for Aston Villa last summer. He has also broken into the Dutch national side ahead of the World Cup next year and had been tipped to be linked with some extensive speculation during the transfer window.
However, he has given Feyenoord a cause for celebration after becoming the second young star to commit his future to the club this week.
Arsenal and Spurs target Jody Clasie agreed a new deal to keep him in the Eredivisie side’s ranks yesterday and now de Vrij has followed suit be penning an extension to keep him at the club until 2015.
“It makes me happy to know I can continue to be part of this team and club for longer,” de Vrij said.
“I can see the potential here and of course I am pleased that Jordy remains for longer here too.”
Feyenoord finished a strong campaign in third place this season.
