L’Équipe are reporting that Stijn Spierings (27) is set to return to Toulouse FC on loan, just months after joining RC Lens on a free transfer.
Spierings left Toulouse on a free transfer at the start of the summer and joined Franck Haise’s side, who this season will compete in the Champions League. However, the Dutch midfielder won’t be participating in that campaign. After a difficult start to life at the club, and a seeming lack of unsuitability to Haise’s tactical demands, was left out of Lens’ 25-man squad to compete in the European competition.
There is now seemingly an acceptance that things won’t work out between Spierings and Lens. Toulouse president Damien Comolli has caught wind of their uncomfortable marriage and wants to bring the Dutchman back to Le TéFéCé. The two clubs are in discussions over a ‘joker’ loan deal, which would see Spierings immediately rejoin his former club. His departure from Lens should be formalised in the coming days, according to L’Équipe.
