Clasie plays central midfield for Feyenoord. Typically playing in a shielding role in front of the defence Clasie is making a name for himself as a top notch defensive midfielder. Strong in the tackle and adept at making interceptions the young Dutchman excels at breaking up opposition moves.

Clasie however is not just a spoiler. When his team has possession he tends to act as a deep sitting playmaker distributing the ball accurately around the park. Despite his typically withdrawn role he has already picked up five assists, although this tally is helped by his set piece taking duties.

With defensive midfielder being such an important position in the modern game it wouldn't be too much of a surprise if any number of Premier League sides were taking a good long look at Jordy Clasie.
