Feyenoord boss expects quiet transfer window

Giovanni van Bronckhorst says he isn't expecting much transfer activity when the window opens in January, as he feels confident in his current squad.

Feyenoord currently lead the Eredivisie, three points ahead of second placed Ajax and six ahead of reigning champions PSV in third, and their head coach thinks his current crop of players are capable of claiming the club's first league title in 17 years.

Going into their last fixture before the mid-season break against Vitesse having already been crowned as 'winter champions'.

"There is not much money [left for transfers], but I am very happy especially about how my players have done in the first half of the season. Therefore, I do not think it is necessary to invest in the winter." he told RTV Rijnmond.

While the former Netherlands international says he is satisfied with his playing squad, he did admit that if some of his key players do leave the situation may change.

Defenders Terence Kongolo and Rick Karsdorp, aged 22 and 21 respectively, have been linked with Europe's elite over the past few months.

"You never know how a window will evolve and you have to deal with personal situations of boys. You can never rule out anything, but we prefer to keep everyone together," he told VI.
