Ajax Youngster Nicolas Lodeiro Set To Return To Nacional - Report

Uruguay international Nicolas Lodeiro appears to be on his way out of Eredivisie giants Ajax as his former side Nacional have shown an interest in re-signing the attacking midfielder, according to various reports from Uruguay.

The 21-year-old midfielder joined Ajax from Nacional in January 2010 for a reported €4 million fee, but he has never really managed to impress at the Godenzonen. Lodeiro has so far made only eight Eredivisie appearances for the Amsterdam side.

Lodeiro is believed to be unhappy with his current situation at Ajax and has therefore set his sights on a move back to Nacional.

"I'm on my way back to Nacional. We're currently taking care of all the paperwork," reads the player's Twitter account.

Nevertheless, the midfielder has yet to confirm that the aforementionted Twitter account is indeed his.

Ajax are expected to be willing to discuss a transfer if a good offer comes in for Lodeiro in the January transfer window.
