boteThe Rotterdam club have agreed a fee of around €2.5 million with Groningen for the defender, who signed a four-year deal after completing his medical in Rotterdam. Botteghin could now make his debut for the club in Sunday’s tie with Cambuur.

Botteghin started his career with Zwolle, making 103 appearances for the club before moving to NAC Breda in 2011. After two years in Breda, Botteghin then made the step up to Groningen, where he has made 84 appearances, scoring five goals.

The 27-year-old is Feyenoord’s seventh signing of the summer after deals for Dirk Kuyt, Eljero Elia, Michiel Kramer, Marko Vejinovic, Jan-Arie van der Heijden, and Simon Gustafson.
