In fact Feyenoord sporting director Frank Arnesen said he was very pleased to have gained Nelson on loan for a season, saying, “We’ve been following Reiss for months now,” said Arnesen. “Bringing him to Feyenoord in this transfer window was one of our priorities, so we are very happy that we’ve managed that and that we are able to welcome him.

“Reiss is a very creative striker, a rapid boy, good with his feet, who makes things very difficult for defenders in one-on-ones. We can really use a player like that in our forward line.”
