Feyenoord are in talks with Southampton about re-signing former midfielder Jordy Clasie on a season-long loan, according to Sky sources.
However, it is understood Saints would prefer a permanent deal for the 27-year-old, who moved to St Mary's in 2015 for £8m.
The Netherlands international has made 46 appearances for Southampton, scoring twice. He spent last season on loan at Club Brugge and helped them win the Belgian First Division title.
Clasie, who has two years remaining on his contract, tried to secure a return to Feyenoord last season but said the Dutch side "didn't want me".
He is understood to want a return to his native Netherlands for family reasons and could get his wish this summer, with Feyenoord looking to strengthen after finishing fourth in last season's Eredivisie, 17 points behinds champions PSV Eindhoven.
Speaking after Saturday's 3-0 friendly defeat at Derby, Southampton boss Mark Hughes told Sky Sports News: "There's been talk but we'll have to wait and see.
"Sometimes they happen, sometimes they are not quite right on what we want and what's on the table."
Should Clasie rejoin Feyenoord, he will become the 13th player to leave Southampton this summer as Hughes rebuilds a squad that narrowly avoided relegation from the Premier League.
