Feyenoord have snapped up former Blackburn Rovers target Alexander Ostlund from Hammarby. The Sweden international had caught the eye of Rovers boss
Mark Hughes in November and there were rumours the Premiership club would make an offer for the right back.
But Hughes has opted not to pursue his interest and that has enabled Feyenoord to nip in and sign Ostlund. The defender has penned a four-and-a-half
year contract at De Kuip and his arrival in Rotterdam ends Feyenoord's protracted search for a new stopper.
