Van Rhijn has made 59 appearances for Ajax and has established himself as their first-choice right-back.

Speculation has claimed he could be on the radar of Everton boss Roberto Martinez, but the player insists he is happy with his current club.

Van Rhijn told Amsterdam TV station AT5: "It's everywhere in the news.

"It would be nice if they are interested, but for now I am happy here in Amsterdam."

The 21-year-old, who has been in good form this season with two goals in 14 appearances, is under contract with Ajax until the summer of 2015 and is happy to be back in action after the winter break.

He added: "I am feeling better. I am fully fit and came back sharp from the winter break. The two weeks off was a welcome break."

The Holland international has recently lost his place in the national side to Feyenoord's Daryl Janmaat but will hope to be involved in the World Cup squad.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
