Goal.com is shit but this one is definitely true, they just translated some quotes.

As for Feyenoord's claims: First of all English clubs are forced to looks towards the international market due to the strict catchment laws. Then again I'm sure if this was Arsenal or Barcelona everyone would have been praising their scouting network instead of screaming murder.

Not to mention that we needed to wipe that grin off their face for those £9m they got in 2006.

The kid definitely needs a haircut

It has been reported that Feyenoord are considering complaining to FIFA but a Chelsea spokesman said: "We have kept Feyenoord abreast of our interest and as such we have reached an agreement with them."

The thing about this is, the PLAYER has said he wants to go to Chelsea. (As far as I'm aware) it's not because we've paid his parents off or anything, it's his choice. Like any other transfer? I do feel sorry for the club, they are seen as Europe's youth academy, to train players for clubs like ours to buy. But he's choosing to leave.

Chelsea are poised to sign Dutch youngster Nathan Ake from Feyenoord after agreeing a deal with the Eredivisie club.

The 15-year-old is one of Europe's most exciting talents and was also being reportedly monitored by Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City.

However, it seems that Chelsea will be acquiring their youngster's signature as he has his heart set on a move to the Stamford Bridge outfit.

Feyenoord manager Leo Beenhakker is less than impressed with the transfer tactics of Premier League clubs and claims only teams in England would behave in such a manner.

"I've discussed this matter with Nathan and his parents. He told me that he really wanted to move Chelsea and his parents were OK with his decision," said Beenhakker to Algemeen Dagblad.
