Schuurman, who currently plays for Jong Feyenoord and the club’s U19 side told the clubs official website, “I feel really at home at this club. I also get a lot of confidence from the coaches and the club. This is also evident from this contract extension, ”

“I learn a lot every day, in my first year with the A-squad. If everything is positive and the club comes up with a proposal for a contract until 2020, you do not say no. This just feels really good. ”

Schuurman has now set his sights on the first team,  “My next goal is to make my official debut in the first team of Feyenoord. We have a coach who dares to develop young players, such as recently with Bart Nieuwkoop.”
