‘Ajax sells a clear’ no ‘to FC Twente and SC Heerenveen’


Ajax is not planning to store Jurgen Ekkelenkamp at another club in the Eredivisie for the time being, reports that The Telegraph. The attacking midfielder is in the picture at FC Twente.

Ajax sees a role in the first team for Ekkelenkamp next season. In addition to FC Twente, SC Heerenveen also knocked on the door in Amsterdam, but both clubs were yet to receive a clear ‘no’ from director of football affairs Marc Overmars.

Ajax coach Erik ten Hag is charmed by Ekkelenkamp, ​​but the twenty-year-old midfielder did not play much in the first team last season. Ekkelenkamp himself hopes for a chance in Ajax 1, but is not unwilling about a rental to an Eredivisie club.

“Making Overmars non-negotiable of a rental to FC Twente and SC Heerenveen is a clear signal to the self-trained player, who must now take his chance in the preparation,” writes Mike Verweij. Ekkelenkamp has a two-year contract in Amsterdam.
