The transfer from Quincy Promes will not be completed until next week. Sport-Express reports. Ajax‘s attacker won’t report to Russia before that time either.
Ajax and Spartak Moscow seem to be getting closer together. Trainer Erik ten Hag already admitted after the match against PSV that Promes would like to go to Moscow and was therefore left out of the competition selection. Director of player policy Marc Overmars also expects it to come.
A transfer seems to be a matter of a few days. According to Sport-Express, it is waiting for green light from Ajax. According to Russian media, Spartak Moscow offered Ajax three options for the deal. It is not clear where the Amsterdam people prefer, but it is certain that Spartak is trying to build certain certainties in case Promes is condemned. He‘s a suspect in a criminal case.
Promes needs a Russian visa and a work permit to enter Russia. He’s working on that. The transfer market in Russia is still open for two weeks.
Update: Promes has a work permit, so a transfer to Moscow Spartak is one step closer. Sport-Express reports. However, it is still up to the clubs to reach an agreement. Sport-Express suggests that Ajax deliberately slowing down negotiations in order to force Spartak to reach an agreement. The club will play the eighth final against Dinamo Moscow in the Russian Cup next Saturday and would like to play Promes in that match.
‘This is what Ajax is trying to do: create a negotiating position for improving the conditions. The tactics are understandable, but Spartak cannot be blackmailed in that way’, writes the Russian newspaper. “Spartak is calm and expects it to end as it should.”
