The highly-rated midfielder has been the subject of much speculation over a move, with the Ligue 1 champions allegedly set to table a huge offer
Frenkie de Jong remains firmly committed to Ajax for the immediate future, says his agent, as rumours continue to swirl on the Dutchmanâ€™s future.
The highly-rated midfielder has been the subject of much speculation over a move to a number of European heavyweights.
Paris Saint-Germain are thought to be leading the chase for the 21-year-oldâ€™s signature, with a deal worthÂ â‚¬75mÂ (Â£67m/$85m) with Manchester City and Barcelona also in the mix.
De Jongâ€™s agent Ali Dursan has now poured cold water over any chance of a January switch, reiterating that the former Willem II man is contracted to the Eredivisie outfit.
â€œThere's no deal yet,â€ Dursan told NOS. â€œFrenkie will stay at Ajax til next summer. That's guaranteed and it's all I can say right now.â€
Manager Erik ten Hag also acknowledged the rumours during his pre-match press conference ahead of his sideâ€™s game against PEC Zwolle, admitting that should De Jong choose to remain at the club long-term, it would be a boost for the reputation of the Eredivisie as one of Europeâ€™s top leagues.
â€œIt would be great for Ajax, a huge compliment,â€ the 48-year-old stated. â€œThis would be good for the evolution of Ajax and the appearance of Dutch football.
Expounding on the transfer speculation, in particular the stories surrounding a big-money bid from Ligue 1 champions PSG, he added: â€œIt's an issue since the start of the season.
â€œI just had a chat with Frankie and he's speaking French already.
â€œIf it's true, PSG is a very nice club, but there are many more nice clubs in the world.â€
De Jong made the move to Ajax from Willem II in 2016, where he won the Jupiter League Talent of the Season in 2016-17 for the clubâ€™s reserve team Jong Ajax.
He broke through into the first team during the 2017-18 campaign with a run of excellent performances, becoming a regular starter as they finished second behind PSV and qualified for the Champions League.
His good form towards the end of the season earned him his first senior call-up to the Oranje, where he made his debut in a friendly victory over Peru in June.
