Van Persie eyes return to Holland

Ex-Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has confirmed that he is considering a return to Dutch football with either Feyenoord or Excelsior.

Van Persie has been in good form for Fenerbahce this season, with five goals in nine league games after joining the Turkish side in the summer of 2015.

However, the 33-year-old is approaching the final 18 months of his Fenerbahce contract and is already contemplating a potential transfer.

Van Persie was the subject of speculation linking him with a return to the Premier League during the summer, yet a return to the Eredivisie now appears a strong possibility.

“Coming back to the Netherlands is becoming a serious option. And then only at Feyenoord and Excelsior,” he said.

Van Persie began his career at Feyenoord and secured a victory over his former club on Thursday after helping Fenerbahce to a 1-0 win to finish top of their Europa League qualifying group.
