Caltex Socceroo keeper heading to Dutch giants?

Brad Jones' Liverpool links could see him join Feyenoord, who need an experienced goalkeeper after regular number one Kenneth Vermeer ruptured his Achilles tendon.

Feyenoord announced on Tuesday that Vermeer will be out of action for the rest of 2016, with the 30-year-old goalkeeper set for surgery.

The Eredivisie club's technical director, Martin van Geel, told Voetbal International that Jones could be signed as a temporary replacement for Vermeer, with the former Socceroos gloveman a free agent after leaving NEC Nijmegen.

"We have received tips from all sources and indeed, Brad Jones has been mentioned. But we try to put everything in a row and take action," Van Geel said.

Brad Jones starred for NEC Nijmegen in the Eredivisie overnight.

Jones' former Liverpool team-mate Dirk Kuyt is Feyenoord's captain, which could help the Caltex Socceroo make the move to De Kuip.

Feyenoord have already signed a new goalkeeper for the 2016-17 season in Par Hansson from Swedish club Helsingborgs, while their other gloveman - Warner Hahn - has never played a senior match for the Rotterdam-based outfit.

Jones impressed at NEC in the second half of last season, making 17 starts in the Eredivisie and keeping four clean sheets.

It is understood the 34-year-old is training at Liverpool to keep fit while he looks for a new club.
