The former Feyenoord fullback was happy facing Dutch opposition in preseason, though Watford were beaten 2-1.

"That's always nice. It is of course also a good opponent," Janmaat told Ziggo Sport.

Ever return to Feyenoord? I have always indicated that, but it must be the right time. Ultimately, it is up to two parties that must come out together. That is not yet the case. I have one year left, so we'll see.

Yes, I am still following the club. It is difficult. It is quite a mess there, also outside the field. But I always follow it. I always have good feelings for Feyenoord."

The 19-year-old had originally been ruled out for three months with a shoulder injury, but has now returned to preseason training.

"I can't really remember what happened," he said.

"I was just unlucky, I think. When it popped out it was really painful. I had a lot of gas that was nice.

"I'm back ahead of schedule. It was supposed to be three months but we're now two-and-a-half months in. It's feeling good, better than we thought it would be.

"I'm just glad to be back as it's not easy seeing the boys training every day and I'm by myself doing my own thing.

"I can't stop smiling. I'm buzzing as I've been waiting for this."
