Goossens turns down Swans offer

Brendan Rodgers’ Swans agreed a fee for the 23-year-old with NEC

before the transfer window opened and a move had appeared imminent.

But Goossens has decided to see out the season in Nijmegen, the

Dutch club confirmed on their official website. The midfielder is

out of contract at NEC at the end of the campaign and looks likely

to leave on a free transfer in the summer, having been linked with

Eredivisie rivals Feyenoord. Meanwhile, the Swans have offered ADO

Den Haag a trio of players to take on loan this month. Swansea’s

co-owner John van Zweden was born in The Hague and is a big fan of

his home side, which has prompted the proposal. ADO board member

Paul Beyersbergen says Andrea Orlandi, Dave Cotterill and Tom

Butler are the players in question but he is unsure whether the

Dutch side will take up the offer. He told Voetbal International:

“They are all interesting players but all three are midfielders.

“At the moment we are full in those positions. However, you never

know what might happen with our players Lex Immers or Jens

Toornstra.”
