Brad Jones agrees one-year Feyenoord deal after leaving NEC Nijmegen

Goalkeeper Brad Jones has agreed to join Feyenoord on a one-year deal, the Dutch Eredivisie club have announced.

Former Liverpool player Jones, 34, who had previously played in the Eredivisie during a six-month spell with NEC Nijmegen, will undergo a medical on Friday.

He had been training with Liverpool ahead of the new season, but will now return to the Netherlands.

Feyenoord are without keeper Kenneth Vermeer, who will miss the remainder of 2016 with an Achilles tendon injury.

"After Kenneth Vermeer's serious injury we had to act fast, also because Warner Hahn is out of action for some time too," Feyenoord technical director Martin van Geel told the club's official website.

"We only have two more fit keepers in Par Hansson and Justin Bijlow, not enough in our view to start a season with lots of league, cup and Europa League matches.

"That is why we immediately started looking for an experienced goalie, and we found one in Brad."

Van Geel said Jones "knows the Eredivisie and also has international experience," adding: "We are delighted that he is coming to strengthen us."
