The reigning Eredivisie champions are reluctant to see another product of their famed academy system head for the exits midway through the season.

Ajax will not stand in the 23-year-old midfielder's way if he opts to take on a new challenge further down the line, but believe he would benefit from seeing out the 2012/13 campaign in Holland.

Coach Frank de Boer has made it clear that any club planning to make a winter move will have to dig deep in order to push a deal through.

He does not see Spurs or Newcastle United, who have also been linked, stumping up the cash and feels the Premier League will have to wait a little longer before adding yet another talented Belgium international to its ranks.

On the transfer rumours, De Boer said: "That's maybe something for next year.

"I think he'll end this season at Ajax.

"We're very happy with him and don't want to let him go in the winter unless it's a super transfer fee, but I don't think that will happen."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
