Miralem Sulejmani: I am staying at Ajax

Ajax attacker Miralem Sulejmani has revealed he is not leaving the Amsterdam club in the summer despite reports linking him with a move to Arsenal or Liverpool.

The Serbian international has become an integral member of the Eredivisie outfit since Luis Suarez's move to Liverpool in January.

"I can already say that next season I will play at Ajax," Sulejmani told NUsport.

"It is my fourth season, but probably the first in which I play from the first game," the versatile player continued.

"I
want a full season for this club. I owe the club and the fans that."


Coach Frank de Boer is a big reason why the 22-year-old wants to stay with the club, and he was full of praise for the ex-Netherlands international.

"I have to thank him. He likes to make players better, gives them confidence and clarity," Sulejmani revealed.

"For his first match against AC Milan he came to me and said: 'I've seen at Heerenveen what you can [do], you cannot be forgotten'. I thought 'wow this is something new, so much trust.'"

Sulejmani has scored seven goals in 30 appearances in the Eredivisie this season.
