FEYENOORD manager Arne Slot has reacted to reports that a section of the club’s supporters are crowd-funding the €4 million ( N1.7 billion) needed to complete the permanent transfer of Cyriel Dessers.
The Rotterdammers signed Dessers on a loan deal from Genk last summer, with an option to purchase him before the end of his yearlong spell.
But due to their financial limitations, Feyenoord were not interested in taking that option for the 27-year-old during the first half of the campaign.
Slot however, hinted that wealthy supporters could step forward and help Feyenoord acquire Dessers under a different arrangement.

“It shows how extremely compassionate these supporters are and how extremely they value him (Dessers) as a striker,” Slot said, as per Newswep.
“It is also very nice that more than 25,000 euros have already been deposited, if I understand correctly, that they want to spend their self-earned money on Dessers.
“A really nice move, but it has no chance of success. This is really impossible from a legal, fiscal and regulatory point of view.
“I hope this will be followed by those much more wealthy men.”
