Siem de Jong rentree takes shape: ‘I hope to be able to talk to him’

De Graafschap wants to make serious work on a return for Siem de Jong on the Vijverberg. The Superfarmers hope to enter into a conversation with the sc Heerenveen midfielder about his future plans in the short term.
Recently, De Jong and De Graafschap were already flirting with each other and the Doetinchemmers seem to want to keep going. There has been indirect contact with Siem and I understand that he will only really think about his future after the playoffs, says technical director Peter Bijvelds to De Gelderlander. De Jong is currently still playing with Heerenvoor for a European ticket.
I hope to be able to talk to him so that he can also hear our plans. I assume he is interested in that if he is open to a possible switch to De Graafschap, says Bijvelds, who also has FC Eindhoven luminary Joey Sleegers on his list. The so-called toppers often only arrive at a later stage of a transfer period, they await their options. If we get the chance, we strike earlier, but it is now also important to lay a good foundation.
