Cole Bassett: Feyenoord signs US, Colorado young star on loan
Written by Publishing Team

After Cole Bassett scores his first goal for the US men’s national team, he gets his first taste of football overseas.

The 20-year-old Colorado Rapids midfielder has signed an 18-month loan with Feyenoord in the Netherlands, joining the remainder of this season and the entire following season with an option for the club to buy (he signed at the same time a three-year extension with the Rapids). Feyenoord, whose new CEO was former LA Galaxy general manager Denis T. Kloese, is currently third in the Eredivisie and is the third most successful club in Dutch history behind Ajax and PSV. Bassett, who turned down the opportunity to go to Benfica last August, scored the late-game winning goal for the United States in their 1-0 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina in a friendly match last month. This was Bassett’s first match for the senior national team.
