Liverpool back in the hunt, claims Kuyt

Feyenoord striker Dirk Kuyt has claimed Liverpool have expressed fresh interest in signing him and he would like to move to the Premiership.

Kuyt has recently been linked with a move to Newcastle but Liverpool are one of a number of clubs who considered buying the prolific last summer.

The 25-year-old Dutchman has scored 71 goals in 101 games for Feyenoord but has consistently been priced out of a move by his club.

Kuyt, quoted in The Independent, said: 'Jorien van den Herik [Feyenoord president] has informed me of a new approach from last year's European champions, but it is out of my hands.

'I have several opportunities but it is now down to Feyenoord. I am happy at Feyenoord but would like to play in the Premier League.

'Last year that was close to happening so for now I prefer to concentrate only on the World Cup because my hopes could be soured again.'
