Rapids’ Cole Bassett signs loan deal with Dutch club Feyenoord, reports show – The Denver Post

| Business Top stories | World News

The Cole Bassett transfer watch took a huge leap forward on Friday.

Dutch football magazine Voetbal International first reported on Friday morning that Bassett was set to enter into a long-term loan deal with 15-time Eredivisie champion Feyenoord, and MLSSoccer.com’s Tom Bogert reported that the two camps were in advanced talks. The deal would be a one-and-a-half-year loan, with Feyenoord having the option to buy. The deal could be announced next week.

Bassett, 20, from Littleton, was on the verge of closing a deal last year to move to Portugal from Benfica last summer, but opted to stay at Commerce City for a final push towards an MLS Cup. The Rapids ended up winning the Western Conference and posted a club record in points, but failed to win the title, losing in the second round of the playoffs.

Bassett got his first cap with the United States Men’s National Team last month and scored the game-winning goal against Bosnia and Herzegovina. He had extensive training with Arsenal, as well as German Bundesliga teams Freiburg and Hoffenheim. ESPN’s Taylor Twellman also reported on Friday that Bassett left USMNT training camp in January.
