mois anEverton were linked with a late move for the central defender, as they looked for a replacement for the now departed John Heitinga, but Moisander insists he heard nothing.

Moisander told NuSport, “So I think it was nothing more than a rumor. I do not think it’s a shame, because I want to be champion with Ajax. That’s the only thing I want now. And then, in the summer, we see again.”

The 28-year-old is in his second spell with Ajax, having rejoined the club from AZ Alkmaar back in 2012, but is widely expected to leave the Amsterdam Arena once again in the summer.

His performances in the Champions League for Ajax have alerted a number of clubs to the Finnish international, and a move to Barcelona was also rumoured in January.
