Vitesse, ADO Den Haag and FC Utrecht have all contacted Feyenoord about the availability of Gill Swerts. ‘But there’s nothing definite yet,’ declares Swerts, who was told earlier this month that the club would listen to offers for his signature. ‘I’ve also heard that those teams have shown an interest. That’s satisfying, but I’ll have to talk with them first before I make a decision. It’s wait and see.’
‘Of these clubs, at first glance Utrecht is the most ambitious. But I also think that Vitesse will not want to have another season like this one. And you don’t know what ADO Den Haag wants to do. What’s more, you shouldn’t forget that Excelsior are in the mix too,’ the Belgian explains.
‘If a Belgian club calls we can always talk. I never say no in advance. But Dutch football is better tactically than Belgian football. And when you go abroad you never know whether you’ll play. I’m young and I want to play every week.’
