Cole Bassett could be headed to the Dutch Eredivisie as reports have come out that Feyenoord is near a deal with Major League Soccer’s Colorado Rapids to sign the midfielder on loan.
According to a report from Dutch soccer publication Voetbal International, the deal would be an 18-month loan with an option to sign him permanently. Another report said both parties are in advanced talks.
There has been interest from European clubs for the 20-year-old. The most recent came last year when Portuguese giants Benfica wanted to sign him, but he decided to decline the offer to remain with the Rapids for their MLS Cup push.
Bassett’s performances at club level saw him earn a call up to the U.S. men’s national team in December. He would come off the bench in his debut to score the game-winner in the 1-0 victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina in December last year.
Feyenoord is a 15-time winner of the Dutch Eredivisie. They are currently in third place in standings, four points behind leaders PSV.
