milikjaperMilik joined Ajax in the summer after failing to break into the Bayer Leverkusen first team, and although he endured a difficult start, the 20-year-old has now netted 13 goals in 12 appearances for the Eredivisie champions.

Ajax are believed to have a clause in the loan agreement which would allow them to purchase Milik permanently in January, and the striker is open to staying in Amsterdam.

Speaking to Fox Sports, Milik said, “It’s going well, I’m in shape. I feel better lately, so then I play better.”

“The first few months were not so good. Another country, another club, another language: everything was different. Now I’ve been here five months and still I make steps forward. I can already speak and understand a little Dutch. ”

“I prefer to stay here, at Ajax,”

“This is a great club for players between 18 and 22 years. You get opportunities to play and train a lot under good coaches like Frank de Boer and Dennis Bergkamp. In Leverkusen, I was not in good shape and I did not play much. The Bundesliga is indeed greater than the Eredivisie, but Ajax is a big club.”
