Feyenoord are hoping to make Otman Bakkal's loan move from PSV Eindhoven permanent.

The midfielder moved to the Rotterdam club on a season-long deal in August and Feyenoord technical director Martin van Geel is hoping to tie the 26-year-old to a longer deal.

Van Geel told Voetbal International: "He is interesting to many clubs, but also to us. I feel that in Otman's mind, he now lives in Rotterdam. In January we will open talks, but it is clear that we think Bakkal is a player who fits well with Feyenoord."
