Reds make fresh approach for Kuyt

Feyenoord striker Dirk Kuyt has revealed that Liverpool have made a fresh approach to bring him to Anfield.

Liverpool and a host of other clubs made enquiries about the 25yr old Dutch striker last year and he is currently strongly linked with a move to Newcastle.

He told The Independent: ‘The Feyenoord president has informed me of a new approach from last year’s European champions.

‘I am happy at Feyenoord but would like to play in the Premier League.’

‘Last year that was close to happening so for now I prefer to concentrate only on the World Cup because my hopes could be soured again.’

Kuyt is under contract at Feyenoord until 2009 and has an impressive scoring record of 71 goals in 101 games, so it is perhaps understandable that they have rebuffed every offer for him so far.

He said: ‘It is out of my hands. I have several opportunities but it is now down to Feyenoord.’

However Feyenoord indicated that they intend to keep the player and as yet there have been no offers made but the Dutch club say they will knock them back if any are made.

‘Nobody has come in for Dirk,’ a Feyenoord spokesman revealed.

‘He is contracted until 2009 so we expect him here next season, but you never know. He also said he would only leave for one of his dream teams.’
