The AZ Alkmaar defender has expressed his desire to take the next step in his career by moving away from AFAS Stadion this summer. However, the 26-year-old has also insisted that he will not rush into any potential move and could remain at the Alkmaar outfit for another season.
The Finish stopper arrived at AZ in the summer of 2008 after making 71 appearances for FC Zwolle. He has thus far played 100 matches for the outfit from Alkmaar and managed to net three goals along the way.
The 26-year-old has revealed that this is a good time to take the next step in his career.
The highly-rated defender has confirm last month that reports linking him with Ajax Amsterdam are true, but added that he has not been reached by the club officially.
The transfer fee of the star defender won’t be cheap maybe in the region of 8 million euros, so this could be a problem. However many defenders are being linked to Ajax after the departure of Jan Vertonghen.
