Feyenoord have announced the signing of defender Cuco Martina from Everton on loan until the end of the season.

The centre-back was on loan with Stoke City but that deal was cut short and Martina has now sealed a return to the Eredivisie with Feyenoord.

The former RBC Roosendaal, RKC Waalwijk and FC Twente star moved to England with Southampton in 2015 but then followed Ronald Koeman to Everton. After falling out of favour in Merseyside, Martina was loaned to Stoke City, where he made 17 appearances.

Martina will act as cover for Eric Botteghin, who is out for the rest of the season after suffering an injury against Ajax last weekend.
