eliaAjax made a late loan move for the winger in August, but Elia turned down the move back to the Eredivisie despite hardly playing for Werder Bremen.

Elia has now returned to form with the Bundesliga side in recent weeks, and many people believed he would be recalled to the Dutch national side for the recent qualifiers.

The call up did not come but Elia has now stated his happiness that he stayed with Werder during the summer after a discussion with his agent.

He told Voetbal International, “It was an option that my agent Rodger Linse reported, but he has convinced me to go. For my chance in Bremen.”

“Ajax plays in the Champions League, but as a player i must get the most out of myself, and i could be better in the Bundesliga.”

“The season has just started, but I’m glad I listened. I still sit at around seventy percent of the level that i played in my first season with HSV.”
