Ajax offer 3 year deal to Blind

Ajax started talks with Daley Blind over extending his stay in Amsterdam. Blindimage agent spoke with Marc Overmars, director of football affairs at Ajax.

Blind wasn’t the number one option a year ago, Ajax looked to Nicolai Boilesen and Mitchell Dikes, but Boilesen has suffered with injury for the whole season and Dikes wasnt ready for first team football.
Dico Koppers, third left back, also has a contract until 2015, was loaned out to ADO.
Blind took his chance and has been ever present in the first team and even made his debut in the National team. The development has been a surprise to coach De Boer.
De Boer saw the fantastic progress the left back was making and even refused other clubs to talk to Blind. Aston Villa were interested in his year in the left back.
Marc Overmars stated to a newspaper,”You have to give credit to Daley. It shows he has a strong character to improve and play his football”.
Overmars hopes the deal will be agreed quickly he stated “Im very hopful it will be a ‘yes’ or ‘no’,” says Overmars in De Telegraaf.
