Ajax has now confirmed that Sven Nieuwpoort will take Alderweireld place in Austria. The young defender will arrive Tuesday at the training camp. Or Alderweireld still will return back to the training camp is still unclear.
Ajax are staying until the 8 July in Austria to prepare for the new league season. During this time they will play some practice matches. Coach Frank de Boer took a total of 23 players selection that it is towards Austria. In that selection still lack the internationals who were playing in the European Championships in Israel.
Meanwhile, Ajax announced that the departure of Alderweireld has nothing to do with a transfer. Via an official statement “We report this proactively to prevent rumors,” said a spokesman for the Amsterdammers.
