Kazim-Richards joins Feyenoord

The former Galatasaray and Fenerbache winger has joined the Eredivisie side on loan from Turkish outfit Bursaspor

Eredivisie outfit Feyenoord have announced the signing of Turkey forward Colin Kazim-Richards on loan from Bursaspor.

The Rotterdam giants have lost several key players this season and are looking to strengthen in attacking areas following the sale of star striker Graziano Pelle to Southampton this summer. 

Feyenoord can make the deal for Kazim-Richards permanent at the end of the season and the 27-year-old was delighted with his new move.

“Every footballer dreams of being in such a stadium,” Kazim-Richards told the club’s official website.

“I am very proud that I’m going to play at such a big club with a rich history.

“I’ve played in several clubs in Europe and I know what it takes to win games.”

Kazim-Richards has made 35 appearances for Turkey and the English-born forward counts Fenerbahce, Galatasaray, Olympiacos and Blackburn Rovers among his former clubs.

He was recently heavily linked with a move to MLS side Toronto FC.
