Newcastle United registered for Nicolai Jörgensen twice, but was not prepared to go beyond about 17 million euros. Feyenoord focused on a transfer sum of six million more and so the attacker stayed in De Kuip. Jan de Jong has no regrets that the bid was rejected from England.
We did not want to lose Nicolai for that amount. We are a football club, we are not a trading house,”says the director in an interview with the Algemeen Dagblad. He doesn’t think that Feyenoord did not accept the seventeen million that he had not accepted:”We don’t have to sell him. Surely he just stays with Feyenoord? And it is not the case that a bid of less than 17 million means that we did it wrong “.
The 27-year-old Jörgensen, 28-fold international of Denmark, still has a contract until the summer of 2021. So far he made 34 goals in 66 matches and added 20 assists. With Feyenoord he will take up her own pitch next Saturday against Heracles Almelo.
