Feyenoord and Bayer Leverkusen have agreed a loan deal for Danko Lazovic. The Serbia forward is now set to iron out the last formalities with the Bundesliga side and will undergo a medical. If things go as expected Lazovic will join the German club for the duration of the coming season. Despite the loose ends, the deal looks a cert after Lazovic said his goodbyes to players, technical staff and supports at De Kuip Friday. The striker’s Feyenoord contract runs until 2008.
The Serb admitted that he was pleased with how his talk with Leverkusen coach Klaus Augenthaler went and that he looked forward to proving his value. ‘At Leverkusen I have more chances to play than at Feyenoord. Here we have six candidates for the striker’s positions; there I would have to challenge Voronin and Berbatov for two places. And 4-4-2 football suits me. I hope to show the real Danko Lazovic again in Germany.’
Lazovic will have to wait a least a week to do that however, as he still has to serve out a one-match suspension due to a red card picked up in the Heerenveen game at the back end of last season.
