Clasie was left out of Feyenoord’s squad to face Fortuna Dusseldorf on Sunday after the club announced that there was concrete interest in the midfielder. The interest is now confirmed to be Southampton, with boss Ronald Koeman hoping to be reunited with his former Feyenoord captain.

Feyenoord have already signed Marko Vejinovic as Clasie’s replacement, and hope to receive around €12.5 million for the eleven time Netherlands international.
