Dutch side want City’s Swede back again.
Eredivisie side Feyenoord are keeping an eye on young Manchester City striker John Guidetti and have told the player that the door is always open to him should he decide to leave the Etihad, Sky Sports reports.
The highly rated front man has been at City since joining from Swedish side Brommapojkarna in 2008 at the age of 16, but to date he has made just a single appearance in the City first team.
He spent the majority of last season on the sidelines, and it is still unclear as to whether new boss Manuel Pellegrini sees a future for him at the club, though he has been included as part of the squad that is currently in South Africa for their pre season tour.
The 21-year-old, who has also been linked with a move to Sunderland recently, had been sent out on three separate loan spells, with the likes of former club Brommapojkarna, Championship side Burnley and a season-long loan to Feyenoord in 2011/12 where he scored 20 goals in 23 appearances for the Rotterdam outfit to become an instant crowd favourite at De Kuip.
And now, the club’s technical director Martin van Geel has claimed that the club would welcome him back with open arms should he decide to leave the Premier League giants, though he insisted that no move is imminent.
“Guidetti is in our hearts and the door is always open for him,” he told the AD newspaper.
“If a godsend occurs, we would naturally increase our squad with him.
“But I would like to say clearly that no concrete efforts have been made to get him.”
