And earlier report from the Daily Mirror, claimed his father urged him to stay at the Dutch club for another season but talks to convince him to a new contract failed to materialise.
“I personally said to him maybe it’s better to stay one more year at Ajax, to make some kilometres to be important for the team.
“He’s 19 years old. He’s still young but he makes his own decisions, and as a dad, I have to stand behind all the decisions that he makes.
“It looks like he’s going to leave Ajax. I think it’s 90 percent sure that he’s going away.
“If he’s got the feeling to leave then he’s got to do that, but he needs to know what things are coming on his way.”
