Siem de Jong ponders Ajax future

Ajax captain Siem de Jong is considering a transfer away from the Eredivisie champions.

The 24-year-old midfielder was a pivotal figure in the club’s third successive league title triumph in 2012-13 as Frank de Boer’s men beat off competition from rivals PSV Eindhoven to retain their crown.

But with the 2014 FIFA World Cup fast approaching, De Jong is contemplating a move away from Dutch football to establish himself as a regular for the Netherlands.
“(I grew) as a footballer and as a person (at Ajax). Perhaps now is the time for the next step, abroad,” he told ANP.

“I’ll see what’s coming at me in the summer and then make an assessment. I do not necessarily want to move away from Ajax, especially in the season of the World Cup, it is important for me to play a lot.
“Ajax does that for me.”
De Jong’s form this season certainly has not gone unnoticed, and he has been named in Louis van Gaal’s squad for the international friendlies with Indonesia and China.
“I’m in the selection of the Dutch national team and that’s always nice,” he added.
“It’s just a chance to show myself on and off the field again. I have previously been called up under this coach only once.
“In that respect it is a great opportunity to show myself. I am absolutely excited.”
