Feyenoord have announced they will not be signing Cyriel Dessers on a permanent deal following the expiration of his loan.
The Dutch giant made the announcement on their website on Wednesday.
Dessers joined Feyenoord from Belgian topflight side KRC Genk on a one-year loan move and scored 20 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions last season.
He helped Feyenoord reach the final of the inaugural Europa Conference League netting 10 goals.
Unfortunately he could not inspire them to the trophy as they lost 1-0 to Roma in the final.
“Feyenoord will not exercise the contractual option vis-à-vis Racing Genk to permanently recruit Cyriel Dessers. The club had until midnight tonight to raise a purchase option in the lease with KRC Genk, but has decided not to.“
Technical director Frank Arnesen of Feyenoord says he is happy to look back on last season with Dessers.
“A memorable year, for many reasons. Cyriel did exactly what we got him for: score goals and make a difference. He has been instrumental in the club’s European success this year. And not unimportant: he has stolen the hearts of the public in De Kuip. We therefore wish him every success in the continuation of his football career.”
Speaking on his successful loan move, Dessers told Feyenoord’s website:”I had a fantastic time at Feyenoord. Last year I chose this club just before the market closed and that decision has been one of the best of my career.
“The whole season was one big adventure, with the success in Europe and the wonderful interaction with the public proudly standing out. I will cherish jersey number 33 and Feyenoord for the rest of my life.”
