Ajax manager Frank de Boer insists he wants to stay at the club amidst reported interest from Liverpool.

"I am honoured by the request, but I am only just starting with Ajax," he told De Telegraaf.

"In Amsterdam we are on a new path along with the club and Wim Jonk and Dennis Bergkamp, my colleagues on the backroom staff.

"That's why I will stay loyal to Ajax in the years to come."

The 42-year-old has been in charge at the Dutch club since December 2010, when he initially took the role on an interim basis following now-Fulham boss Martin Jol's resignation.

He spent time as Netherlands assistant boss at the 2010 World Cup and enjoyed a distinguished playing career in which he won five Eredivisie titles and one Champions League.
