Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt has ruled out a return to Feyenoord in the immediate future because he feels it would be a step back in his career.

The 31-year-old Holland international is almost certain to leave Anfield this summer and last month he was seen having talks with Feyenoord technical director Martin van Geel, sparking reports he would sign for the Rotterdam club.

"The fact I held talks with Feyenoord indicates I wanted to give it a serious chance," he told AD Sportwereld. "But in many ways the gap is too great at this moment in time."
