Cole Bassett has been linked previously with a move to Europe and the Colorado Rapids homegrown will reportedly be on his way there in the coming days.
Dutch Eredivisie side Feyenoord will reportedly acquire Bassett on a one-and-a-half year loan deal from the Rapids, Voetbal International reported Friday. The agreement will also come with an option to buy.
The 20-year-old has played exclusively with the Rapids in each of the last three MLS seasons. Bassett debuted for the first team in 2018 and since has totaled 74 combined league appearances, scoring 13 goals and registering 11 assists.
Bassett has scored five goals in each of the last two seasons for the Rapids, helping Robin Fraser’s side claim the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference for the 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs. The midfielder made his international debut with the U.S. men’s national team in December, scoring the winning goal in a 1-0 friendly victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Should he make the move to the Netherlands, Bassett would join Richie Ledezma, Luca De La Torre, and Dante Sealy in the growing American contingent.
Feyenoord sits in fifth place in the Eredivisie table with 15 points earned through seven matches played. The top flight side resumes its league schedule on Saturday against Vitesse Arnhem.
