sinkgravSinkgraven’s current club Heerenveen face Ajax this weekend, and ahead of the match the 19-year-old midfielder was asked about rumours of transfer interest from the Eredivisie champions.

The Netherlands U21 international said, “Of course, that flatters me, but I’m trying to shake it off. I do not want that in my head during the match.

“That also does not mean I’m preparing differently. It’s always fun to play against a big club, so in that respect I’m looking forward to the match against Ajax.

“And it’s true that I was a fan of the club in my youth.”

“That doesn’t mean anything for my future and does not determine the choices I might make later.”

Sinkgraven has been labeled as one of the brightest talents in Dutch football and has been linked to Manchester United, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich, but Ajax are said to be favourited to sign the youngster.
