Dessers played a total of 41 games with Feyenoord and his 20 goals were helpful to the Dutch giants’ fantastic season.

He scored 10 goals in the Europa Conference League, leading Feyenoord to the final, where they fell to a 1-0 defeat to Serie A club AS Roma.

Feyenoord had earlier told Genk that they would not be signing the star striker on a permanent deal, meaning Dessers will return to his parent club.

Last Saturday, Dessers scored for Nigeria in a 2-1 defeat to Mexico in an international friendly game in the USA.
