De Graafschap reacts affirmatively to flirtation from transfer-free De Jong

Siem de Jongs flirtation at De Graafschap has been answered by the Superfarmers. Peter Bijvelds, technical director of the club from Doetinchem, states that careful contact has already been made.
The contract of 33-year-old De Jong expires at sc Heerenveen and that means that he will have to look for a new club next summer. De Graafschap, the club where De Jong started in youth training, was mentioned as an option Wednesday evening after the match between Ajax and Heerenveen (5-0) and the attacking midfielder did not react dismissive to that.
Opposite De Gelderlander, Bijvelds says that a return of De Jong to the old nest has indeed been reviewed at the Doetinchem offices. โ€œThere has been indirect contact,โ€ says the technical director of the Superfarmers.
So it could just happen that the former Ajax song will be active in the Kitchen Champion Division next season. De Graafschap is in the post-competition and played the first round of the first round at home with 1-1 against FC Eindhoven. If that diptych is lost, or if one of the next two opponents, if any, is not defeated, De Graafschap remains active at the second level.
