Feyenoord are keen to sign Theo Lucius from PSV Eindhoven.
Feyenoord are keen to sign Theo Lucius from PSV Eindhoven and have loaned out Mark Otten to NEC Nijmegen.
Lucius has been linked with a move away for some time, but interested parties were put off by PSV's asking price last summer.
It is believed that the Dutch champions have lowered their valuation by a sizeable amount and this has prompted Feyenoord to come to the table.
It is believed that Anderlecht are also keen to sign a player who has a deal which runs until 2007, but at this stage a move to Feyenoord seems a more viable option.
Defender Otten, meanwhile, is heading to NEC for next season in order to accrue experience.
Feyenoord coach Erwin Koeman feels the 20-year-old has a bright future in the game and he will look to prove himself at NEC.
NEC, meanwhile, have opted not to hand a contract to Kingsley Ikpotor.
The Nigerian attacker was invited to NEC for a trial and made a decent impression, but the club feel he would demand too much money as a non-EU player.
