Hertha BSC wants Ekkelenkamp

Jurgen Ekkelenkamp may continue his career in the Bundesliga. Hertha BSC wants to release the midfielder and is talking to Ajax about that. A contract renewal doesn‘t seem to be an option anymore.
Ekkelenkamp has another one-year contract with Ajax. The scenario in mind was to renew his contract and then a rental transfer. FC Twente was seen as the most plausible destination, but hasn’
t been counting on his arrival for a while. Earlier, KRC Genk and sc Heerenveen were associated with him. Now it‘s Hertha’s turn to soak Ekkelenkamp at Ajax.
Ajax and Hertha are talking about the transfer sum according to multiple sources. Chances are that Ajax will still be able to renew the Ekkelenkamp contract. That seems to be definitive off the job now.
Hertha appears to have a long breath. The club was already interested in Ekkelenkamp at the end of last year. Then a sale or rental was unnegotiable for Ajax. The cards are shaken differently now.
The 21-year-old Ekkelenkamp was close to the base of Ajax for a while, but never managed to fully convince trainer Erik ten Hag. Ekkelenkamp played a total of 25 Eredivisiie games for Ajax. (Tim van Duijn/soccer first)
