Kuyt spent three seasons at Feyenoord, scoring 71 goals in 101 games, becoming a fan favourite at the Rotterdam based club.

Southampton have also been closely linked with the 34-year-old winger. Saints head coach Ronald Koeman – a former Feyenoord player – has been keen to bring in Kuyt.

The former Netherlands international joined the Yellow Canaries from Liverpool in 2012 for €1 million.

Kuyt scored 71 times in 285 matches for the Reds and 24 goals in 104 international appearances for the Netherlands.

The 34-year-old now has four goals and two assists in all competitions this season.

Fenerbahçe are currently first in the Süper Lig on 41 points after 18 games.
