The Hague, Aug 2 (IANS) Feyenoord attracted Dutch midfielder Steven Berghuis on a one-year loan deal from English football club Watford.
After three seasons at AZ, Berghuis moved to Watford last year. His move was no success. The 24-year-old winger only played nine league matches, all as a substitute, reports Xinhua.
“I really wanted to go to Feyenoord and I am happy to be here,” Berghuis said on the Feyenoord website on Monday.
“Feyenoord had interest for some time, but I wanted to go for my chance at Watford. It came out I had no perspective of playing my favourite position, right winger. Here I do get that chance,” he added.
Despite his disappointing season with Watford, Berghuis received a call-up for the Dutch national squad by the end of last season.
The former FC Twente and VVV forward played his second and third international against Poland (2-1 win) and Austria (2-0 win).
