Eredivisie Champions Feyenoord have completed the signing of highly-rated defensive midfielder Sofyan Amrabat on a four-year deal.

The 20-year-old joins from domestic rivals Utrecht after starring for under manager Erik ten Hag, registering seven assists in 31 games to help the club finish in fourth place.

Feyenoord technical director Martin van Geel revealed the club's delight in acquiring the sought after Morocco international ahead of Ajax Amsterdam, for a modest fee of €4million.
