manu hfhffhElvis Manu has revealed he is desperate to leave Brighton and would jump at the chance to return to his hometown club Feyenoord, should the opportunity arise.

The 23-year-old has failed to establish himself at Brighton following his one million pound move from Rotterdam two seasons ago. Manu has seen his appearances limited at The American Express Stadium featuring only six times this season, mostly in EFL cup games, while also being loaned out to Huddersfield Town towards the end of last season.

The striker recently spoke with about his frustration and desire to leave Brighton saying “I honestly cannot wait for the winter, then there might be a chance of a loan move or a sale. I want to go back to the days that I was important.”

Asked if he favours a return to the Eredivise, and especially Feyenoord, Manu gave a resounding answer.

“Feyenoord is the only club I really have a warm feeling. So if I ever get an offer to come back, then I do not need long to think about it. It’s my club, I’ve already lived my moments and built up a good relationship with the fans,” he said.

During the summer, Manu was constantly linked to the Eredivise with a number of clubs interested in the winger including Excelsior.

He will now have to see in anyone firms up their interest in the January transfer window to allow him to put his difficult time in England to an end.
