After announcing the deal, Feyenoord director Martin van Geel told the official site, “He is very fit and in addition can be used in several positions in the defense.”

“With his experience and skills he can also be of great value for the development of the younger players in our selection. We see Khalid a very welcome reinforcement for this team.”

The signing of Boulahrouz will provide cover for Fred Rutten’s team with defenders Bruno Martins Indi, Stefan de Vrij, and Daryl Janmaat all expected to leave.
