Ajax midfielder and Chelsea target Donny van de Beek has ruled out leaving the Dutch club in the January transfer window. Chelsea were unable to sign any players during the summer transfer window as they were banned from signing any new stars, which left Chelsea boss Frank Lampard having to use what he currently has at the club, and add a few talented youngsters to the side.
However, Chelsea made roughly £130 million in sales over the transfer window and will be looking to spend some of that money in the January window after they were given the green light to sign players over the next few weeks.
And there was a lot of transfer speculation in the media that the likes of Van Der Beek could be coming to the club, especially as there has been a lot of speculation that WILLIAN could leave the club at the end of the season for nothing after failing to agree a new deal.
Van Der Beek has become one of the most coveted players in Europe after helping Ajax win the League, the Dutch Cup as well as Champions League success and there has been a lot of transfer speculation that some of Europes biggest clubs could make a move.
But amid all the transfer speculation surrounding his future, the young man has come out and told chasing clubs that a move away from Ajax is off the table in January as he will not leave the Dutch giants in the Winter. Speaking to Voetbal International, the £50million-rated man said: “I don’t want to leave during the winter break.
“I play here all season, I finish at Ajax this year. That gives me clarity and tranquillity. I will see what happens next. “Maybe someday in my career it will happen that I switch clubs during the winter break, but now I don’t like it.
The blues have done well at the start of this season and all the talented stars are starting to prove that they deserve to be in the side, but if Chelsea are willing to let Willian leave the club, then Chelsea need to find an adequate replacement. There is a big reason big clubs are after the signature of Van Der Beek and that is simply because he adds goals on a regular basis for Ajax. He is tipped to become a real star and his next move is likely to cost the club around £60 million, SO MAYBE IT IS A SMART DECISION FOR HIM TO STAY AT AJAX UNTIL THE END OF THE SEASON.
