The Telegraph: Newcastle United Thinks of Ajax Director Overmars

Marc Overmars is in the picture at Newcastle United. That‘s what De Cceit reports. The director of football can roll out the technical policy at the acquired Premier League club.
Overmars does not want to respond to the news coverage himself, but De Cceit is sure: Newcastle has his arrows on him. Although Overmars doesn’
t seem like the only candidate. In English media, several names are linked to the role of director of football, as a technical director in England is called. Overmars still has a contract with Ajax until 2024, but can leave the club at any time. He has a three-month notice.
The fact that Overmars is sought after in Europe is not striking. Under his leadership Ajax took giant steps towards the European summit, where it hadn‘t been for years. He was already in the picture at Arsenal, Manchester United and FC Barcelona and is now given the opportunity to create a brand new technical policy in Newcastle.
At Ajax, Overmars was often tied to budget, but that will be different in Newcastle. And the salary will also be a multitude of what he gets in Amsterdam, although he definitely doesn’
t have to bite a bit.
