Liverpool, Man Utd target Timber offers Ajax update

Jurrien Timber says staying with Ajax next season could happen.

The defender is being linked with Liverpool and Manchester United.

After a chat with new sporting director Sven Mislintat, he told AD: "I met him here at De Toekomst [Ajax's training ground] and then we spoke briefly and one-on-one. He spoke longer with my agent. As far as I know, Ajax wants to keep me here.

"Other than that, it is difficult for me to say anything about it. Conversations about this will follow soon.

"It's not like I'm gone if we don't play in the Champions League. Ajax remains Ajax.

"What I look at: if I leave, is the whole picture correct? I also know how important the coach and the guys around you are.

"I assume that next season will be better. With or without me, Ajax usually gets it back on track. I understand the guys who think: if a top club comes, I will go. It is also difficult to say no. Only, I don't have that at all.

"In my case everything is still open. Quite a lot is happening in the background in terms of interest. I will soon see what the concrete options are."
