Ajax rules out Drenthe signing

Drenthe has been linked with a move to the Eredivisie giants.

“I’ve read several reports that we are eager to land Real Madrid defender Royston Drenthe in the upcoming transfer window, but this is absolutely not true,” Jol said on the official Ajax website.

“Somebody made up this rumour and put it online. All the other sources don’t even check whether the rumour is true and just publish it too.

“I feel really sorry for our fans who read these kind of things, too. I can only hope that they are aware of that not everything they read on the internet is true when it comes to Ajax.

“I am glad that we have a game again on Sunday, so we can forget about this kind of nonsense.”
