Feyenoord are reportedly weighing up an approach for Pedro Mendes.According to reports emanating from the Dutch press, Feyenoord are weighing up an approach for Pedro Mendes.
The Tottenham midfielder only arrived at White Hart Lane last summer from Porto but the arrival of Edgar Davids has cast doubts over the future of the Portugal international.
Despite Mendes having enjoyed a decent introduction to The Premiership last term, it is expected that Spurs boss Martin Jol will pair Michael Carrick with Davids in the centre of his midfield.
Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad have reported that Feyenoord technical director Matte Wotte was in attendance to see Tottenham play Reading in a pre-season friendly - with Mendes the subject of his observations.
Feyenoord are in the market for their left side and could see Mendes as the perfect replacement for Bart Goor, who has recently quit the club for Anderlecht.
Kaiserslautern wide man Kamil Kosowski was considered, but the Eredivisie giants have now decided he is not of the calibre they are searching for.
