Cole Bassett is approaching the move to Eredivisie giant Feyenoord

Colorado Rapids midfielder Cole Bassett is approaching a move to the Dutch giant Feyenoord, sources have said to 90min.

The 20-year-old midfielder has attracted strong European interest for some time after spending long periods training with Arsenal, Freiburg and Hoffenheim before.

Last summer, Bassett was ready to join Benfica in Portugal but refused a move, and instead chose to stay with Rapids when they topped the Western Conference and strived for the MLS Cup honor.

“It was a tough decision because of the club’s position,” Bassett said afterwards. “They are a Champions League club and are one of the best clubs of all time.

“It was simply not the best step for me at the moment. I feel I’m in a good place here. I see the team we have and it has the best chance of winning a trophy, whether it’s Supporters’ Shield or MLS Kopp. “

Colorado eventually failed in its bid for silver, but Bassett’s stock has not fallen. The 20-year-old finished the campaign with five goals and three assists in 32 games during the regular season, while he was unlucky to hit the woodwork seven times – more than any other MLS player.

Several sources have now confirmed that Feyenoord are moving after the midfielder. An agreement is believed to be approaching, with Bassett initially intending to go on loan with the 15-time Dutch champions who have an option to make the transfer permanent.

His strong form at club level has been rewarded by Gregg Berhalter, who made Bassett his USMNT debut in a friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina last month. Bassett returned the only goal in a 1-0 victory for the United States.
