Royston Drenthe

The player making the greatest impact at this month’s UEFA Under 21 Championships is Royston Drenthe of Feyenoord. He’s being touted to go just about everywhere with no less than 6 clubs making inquiries: West Ham, Sunderland, Aston Villa, Tottenham, Newcastle and Manchester City as well as Scottish outfit Celtic.

Drenthe has been outstanding during the tournament. A left back converted to winger for the tournament, he has only played one season in the Dutch top flight for Rotterdam side Feyenoord. In his first game against Israel he as deemed to be playing against weak competition but in the second game against Portugal, Drenthe jinked, skipped, slid and all around terrorized the Portuguese defense. If a defender (both Portuguese defenders –starter and sub to replace him, were yellow carded) when they stood off he's let off a hard strike, charge to the by-line or zing cross into the box. He was a real handful and cemented his class against Belgium in the final group match.

As scouts left the matches, I’m sure they were pondering what it would cost them to prize the player away from Feyenoord.

Drenthe’s agent said he’s received about 15 inquiries from different clubs throughout Europe.
He’s a dedicated kid:

“After the Portugal game I didn’t get any sleep until 4am. I’m still so pumped up and I lie and think about my game; analysing what went well and what went wrong. Only after rerunning the game several times do I fall asleep.”

The 20-year-old Drenthe could be available for a modest 3.6m pounds but I can’t imagine that he would sell for that price should he have anymore standout performances at the tournament. The asking price is well within the reach of most clubs so a bidding war could ensue. It’s up to Feyenoord which could easily block a deal and cash in next season where the player will likely garner a bigger sum.

I'd say he looked solid in the game at the u21 but he has only had one season at the top. 3m sounds fair.

Not sure we should go for him. He looks class, and given time, he will be amazing, but no prem right-back would stand off him quite as much as the Israeli one did.

He was nothing special at feyenoord last season but he also played in defense. Maybe has found a home on wing.

Look he has an obvious talent and you cant get much for 3 mil these days, if somebody wants him they will have to make an offer Feyenoord cant refuse, or pay the same amount next year. is a gamble but as a spurs fan we need a left winger and there are not many available, so i would take the risk myself...

re tottinghams comment: I know that when i play i love to attack players and much prefer an in your face type defender rather than a stand off one. If you dont have time to think and you have quick feet and brain, it comes natural. He looks like that type of player. He WILL be the next big thing to come out of Holland. snap him up now or next season his value will rocket, guarenteed.

I agree, but i hear he also has a talent for a booking, but at Tottenham we need to be bold like we were with Berbatov, i remember the ragging spurs fans were getting about Berba last summer, Gooners calling him the new Rebrov, but we were bold and now have an admired and much sought after talent playing for us, maybe Drenthe could be the same, look at what Manyoo paid for Nani, and going by the under 21 championship 'Drenthe has played much better than Nani

Yeah, say you "gamble" and pay £5 - 8m for him now, not too sure if Fetenoord are in the Champions L next season but if he plays a handfull of good games on that stage ya just know his value will go crazy.

thats what i think, pay 7 or 8 mil now, as you say if he comes to more peoples attention next year we would have no chance even if we had the funds, we need to get in while Barce, Real ect are not showing interest..

MMMMM... Barca or Toteenham

GET HIM NOW!!!!

i think he looks like a good aquisition, decent left peg which is something everyone knows we need. i reckon for around 6 mil he'd be ours. remember lennon was unproven when we got him as was berby.

plus i like having exciting players on the pitch, its what we made aname for ourselves for last season, exciting attacking footy

I have followed this guy last season, and he was one of the few bright lights in the Feyenoord selection this year. The club ended 9th in te Dutch League so you can imagine how it is for such a youngster to stand out in a terrible squad.

Foppe de Haan of Hollan -21 turned Drenthe into a left Midfielder, and since then everything Royston touched turned into gold. I think he is a decent left back but a Worldclass leftmidfielder.

Definetly the new Edgar Davids and better!

the difference is we only paid £1m for Lennon, I think £6m is over the top for someone who has never played in a decent league like the PL.
