Maher has also been linked with English sides Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
It would appear though that a move to Ajax is out of the question.
Speaking to Dutch paper De Telegraaf, Overmars said: “I have called Adam and his agent Sigi Lens to tell them we will make other choices.
“I have also informed AZ that we are no longer interested.”
Maher had previously stated that he would like to stay in Holland despite interest from abroad.
