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.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
