De Telegraaf: ‘If passive Ajax continues like this, it grabs next to Wijndal’

Ajax seems to be giving up the battle for Owen Wijndal. At least, that‘s what club watcher Mike Verweij says. The AZ captain is reportedly keen to make the switch to the national champion, but a transfer to a foreign club is more obvious at the moment.
In De Cceit’
s Kick-Off Football Podcast, Verweij talks about the latest developments at Ajax. โ€œThere are developments in that sense, that H2 (technical directors Gerry Hamstra and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, ed.) does not handle everything well anyway, because Ajax threatens to grab a little sleep next to Owen Wijndalโ€, reveals the journalist. โ€œAjax does not give home and is rather passive. That boy really wants to go to Ajax and has also indicated to his management how to achieve that.โ€
Nevertheless, the expected departing AZ captain seems to be moving abroad. โ€œIn the meantime, there is talk with major foreign clubs. If Ajax continues like this, the club grabs next to itโ€, says Verweij, who knows that Wijndal has to cost ten million euros. โ€œI think there‘s something going on internally. A commissioner will not be convinced, because the contact to Wijndal is rather passive.โ€
Verweij does not want to reveal which clubs have far-reaching interest in Wijndal. โ€œClubs from big leagues,โ€ he says. โ€œWhether it’
s really big clubs? A Champions League participant.โ€
