The Rotterdam giants have struck a deal to sign the midfielder on a free transfer in the summer, but it is being claimed they are now eager to make the transfer happen in January.
Feyenoord have had an alarming dip in form in recent weeks and manager Ruud Gullit is looking to inject some fresh impetus in January.
Vitesse have revealed that they may be willing to accede to Feyenoord's wishes, provided their offer is acceptable.
"They want to take him over from us with immediate effect," Vitesse technical manager Jan Streuer told Omroep Gelderland. "They are in some trouble there.
"It can certainly happen if it's financially appealing to us."
Vitesse already have an ideal replacement for Hofs in the form of Youssouf Hersi and may opt to secure a fee for a player who will leave for nothing in the summer.
