De Jong urges Man City to sign Ajax star

Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong has urged his club to sign Ajax star Gregory van der Wiel.

The £10million-rated Holland internaitonal has long been linked with a move to City.

“I know that Greg is on our wanted list at Manchester City,” De Jong told the Daily Star.

“I have pleaded with them to sign him, as we could use a good right-back.

“The tempo of English football will make him stronger still and I’ve recommended him to City’s management.”
