hahn aFeyenoord announced on Monday that a three year deal had been agreed with the Dordrecht keeper, who will move to Rotterdam in the summer.

The Netherlands U21 international has been in great form so far this season for the Eerste Divisie leaders Dordrecht, who were unwilling to lose him in the January transfer window.

Hahn has revealed that growing up in Rotterdam has influenced his decision to move to Feyenoord, and reject offers from the likes of Newcastle, Celtic, and Roma.

He told De Telegraaf, “I am incredibly happy with this three-year contract.”

“At one point I could choose from many clubs: Newcastle United, Celtic, Roma, Lazio. It was crazier by the day.┬áBut for me at that time it was already clear that I wanted to develop in Holland at Feyenoord.

“I come from Rotterdam, Feyenoord is in all respects a great club. I can only be satisfied in retrospect by how my career has gone so far.”
