Feyenoord pair Van Persie, Berghuis backing bid for Southampton outcast Clasie

Feyenoord players are backing their move for Southampton midfielder Jordy Clasie.

Clasie, who spent last season on-loan at Club Brugge, has admitted he's ready to leave Saints and return to the Eredivisie.

"Clasie? That's quality," said Feyenoord striker Robin van Persie, whose words were underlined by Steven Berghuis.

"A great player, we can be very good with him," said the midfielder.

Holland international Clasie has been with Southampton for the past three years.
