Feyenoord loanee Jordy Clasie admits he is unsure where his future lies as the club prepare to change management over the summer.

The 27-year-old made 129 Eredivisie appearances for Feyenoord after graduating from their academy in 2010, before moving on to Southampton in 2015.

But he struggled to settle on the south coast and agreed a season-long loan move back at De Kuip last summer.

Clasie, who has made 29 league appearances this term, was hoping to earn a permanent deal at the end of the season but a change in management could scupper those plans.

Feyenoord have already confirmed that Jaap Stam will be replacing Giovanni van Bronckhorst as boss over the summer, throwing Clasie’s future at the club into doubt, and he admits his performances have suffered as a result.

Clasie told De Telegraaf: ‘Of course my future plays a part in deciding my mindset.

Not directly during the matches, but subconsciously outside the competitions.

‘Right now I would just want to focus on conquering third place with Feyenoord.

I want to close it here as well as possible.

‘I don’t have any say in what will happen to me after that.

But of course I am playing for my future, there is that realisation.’
