Feyenoord has confirmed that Belgium’s Anderlecht is one of the clubs to have shown an interest in taking Johan Elmander on loan. ‘We were contact once by Anderlecht, but there are other clubs that have spoken to Rob Baan with the same intention,’ said manager Jan D. Swart. ‘We’ll wait to see what Johan Elmander himself thinks about it. He is currently on holiday.’ If Feyenoord decide to loan out the Swede, any deal would not exceed one season.

‘The only argument for a loan might be that Johan continues to develop at the highest level next season, playing every week. Because Van Marwijk is unable to guarantee him that at Feyenoord. But for the time being no one at Feyenoord is desperate to loan him out. He can play in two positions after all. What’s more, Pierre van Hooijdonk kept himself free of injuries last season and played almost every game. Who’s saying that he’ll have the same luck next season’. After joining Feyenoord from Gothenburg Allsvenskan side Örgryte in December 2000, Johan Elmander made eleven starts last season for the Rotterdammers, including the Champions League encounter at Bayern München and two UEFA Cup matches against Freiburg. He also came on from the subs bench a total of fifteen times in all competitions.
