Bart Goor is hugely disappointed with Feyenoord's failure to sign Timmy Simons.
Bart Goor has suggested that Feyenoord's failure to sign his compatriot Timmy Simons could signal the end of his time at De Kuip.
Belgian international Goor had a fine personal campaign at De Kuip, but cut a frustrated figure as the Rotterdam club lagged way behind PSV Eindhoven in De Eredivisie.
Feyenoord are keen to keep Goor and the signs are suggesting he was informed compatriot Simons would be brought in from Club Brugge this summer.
However, Feyenoord abandoned their chase for the midfielder when Brugge refused to lower their demands and the news has not pleased Goor.
"They had made promises about this," Goor told Het Nieuwsblad about Simons.
"I had counted on the arrival of Timmy Simons. A Dutch speaker in that crucial position in the squad is exactly what we need after such a meagre season.
"It's very regrettable. I will draw my own conclusions, but first I must speak with the club to listen to what they have to say.
"If the talks do not bring what I want, then we have got a problem."
Anderlecht are keen to bring Goor back to Belgium and the winger admits playing in the UEFA Champions League is an attractive option.
"Maybe Anderlecht will play in the UEFA Champions League and will challenge for the title again next season," added Goor. "That appeals to me enormously."
Despite being frustrated with the club's failure to challenge for honours, Goor says he has no regrets over moving to De Kuip from Hertha Berlin.
"I am not sorry to have chosen Feyenoord," he added. "Personally, I have had an excellent season.
"Feyenoord are a top club, every game there are 50,000 fans in the stands.
"But I am ambitious and want to win prizes. I am not looking to cause unrest and hope we can settle this in a friendly manner."
