Larsson was able to make the switch now because the Chinese transfer window does not close until later today. The timing is not ideal, but Feyenoord found the offer hard to turn down and also understands what a great opportunity this is for the player.
Larsson arrived at De Kuip in August 2017 from sc Heerenveen, scoring on his debut against Heracles Almelo. In his first season Feyenoord won the KNVB Cup. Larsson recently clocked up his hundredth official appearance for the club.
The move to China ends Larsson’s five-and-a-half stay in the Eredivisie. He first came to the Netherlands from IFK Göteborg in his home country Sweden in 2014. All told, Larsson played 158 times in the Eredivisie, scoring 37 goals.
Feyenoord wishes Sam Larsson lots of luck in his future endeavours.
