Toby Alderweireld said he has no intention to leave Ajax any time soon as he feels he is not ready yet to make the move abroad.

The Belgium international, 23, has recently been linked with Premier League clubs Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United, but he is happy to remain at the Eredivisie champions for the foreseeable future.

“Thomas Vermaelen was almost 24 when he left Ajax for Arsenal, while Jan Vertonghen is two years older than I am, and has only just left,” Alderweireld told Elf Voetbal.

“So if I’d follow in their footsteps, I would not leave Ajax in the upcoming summer, but in the year after that. I still have plenty of time to further develop and follow the same path as them.”

Alderweireld, who has a contract until June 2014, has made over 100 Eredivisie appearances for Ajax since making his debut in 2008-09.
