Feyenoord sign Karim El Ahmadi and Kenneth Vermeer

Feyenoord have completed the signings of midfielder Karim El Ahmadi from Aston Villa and goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer from Ajax.

El Ahmadi joined Villa from Feyenoord in 2012 for two million pounds and made 56 appearances, scoring three goals, for Paul Lambert's men.

However, with the form of Fabian Delph and the emergence of Ashley Westwood and Jack Grealish, the Moroccan would have found his first team chances limited this season and Villa have now confirmed his exit.

El Ahmadi told the Dutch club's official website: "I've always said I wanted to return to Feyenoord some time. That time has come. In my first period at this club Feyenoord was growing and that growth has continued in recent years.

"I'm really looking forward to playing in a full De Kuip again and sharing my experience with the other Feyenoord players. I'm also relishing teaming up again with Fred Rutten (Feyenoord boss), who was very important for me at the start of my career at FC Twente."

Feyenoord have also signed Vermeer, 28, on a four-year contract.

Ajax allowed the Netherlands international to join their arch rivals after the keeper lost his place to Jasper Cillessen.

"When we were given the chance to add such an excellent keeper to our squad we did not want to miss it," Feyenoord technical director Martin van Geel told his club's official website. "Kenneth is a very good keeper, with bags of experience in the Eredivisie and a good number of appearances as keeper at Champions League level. We're sure Kenneth, with his strengths, will add quality to Feyenoord."

Vermeer added: "A number of clubs were interested, but Feyenoord appealed to me the most. This is a wonderful, big club with a loyal following. I've experienced that as an opponent in recent years. I cannot wait to play at De Kuip in the Feyenoord jersey -- and Feyenoord are full of ambition to achieve the best possible. That is what I'm looking for in a club, so this is a very conscious decision."
