SAY HI TO FEYENOORD’S NEW LEFT-BACK

Feyenoord agreed terms with Brazilian youth international Carlos Dondé 'Jean' Monday in a deal aimed at bringing the 19-year-old left-back to the Kuip on a 4(+1)-year contract. ‘Jean’ (pronounced ji-an) has already undergone a medical. Feyenoord now need to reach agreement with the player’s club, Atletico Paranaense, to put the final stamp on the switch. Jean travels to Austria Tuesday to join the rest of the squad at the Feyenoord training camp.

Jean is best known in his homeland for his appearances in the Brazil under-20 team. ‘I have only played two first-team games for Atletico, as I am almost constantly travelling with the national team,’ admitted the Brazilian Monday. ‘But that has given me a lot of useful experience.’ Feyenoord flagged up the player during the South American championship for players to 20 years of age held in Rio de Janeiro at the start of the year. Among other things, the Dutch scouting delegation saw Jean score a scintillating goal from distance against Colombia. ‘I performed well there and there was a lot of interest from European clubs directly after the tournament. Feyenoord made the most tangible offer, so I opted for Rotterdam. The club has a good reputation in Brazil, not least due the UEFA Cup win.'
