According to Voetbal International, Feyenoord are close to signing Kevin Diks on loan as they seek a replacement for Roma-bound Rick Karsdorp.

Rick Karsdorp is expected to complete his move to Roma in the next 48 hours in a deal reportedly worth €15 million plus bonuses.

Utrecht’s wing-back Giovanni Troupee was linked with Feyenoord in the Dutch press on Saturday morning, but Voetbal International is now reporting that Kevin Diks is close to joining on loan from Fiorentina.

The 20-year-old Dutchman has failed to break into the Italians first team since joining from Vitesse last summer, and he moved back to Arnhem on loan in January. Fiorentina are happy for the right-back to gain another year of experience in the Eredivisie and he will compete with Bart Nieuwkoop for the starting spot in Rotterdam.
