Ajax boss Erik ten Hag believes Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia is a good player but a transfer is not on the cards.

At the press conference before Ajax’s clash with PSV on Saturday, Ten Hag was asked whether he and Marc Overmars think Malacia is a good player.

Ten Hag responded, “We do think he is a good player, yes,”

“A transfer from Malacia to us is not an issue in the first place. Before we get all speculations again: it does not play at all. We can accommodate a departure of Tagliafico within our current selection. If it is really necessary, we have a shadow list indeed. Whether Malacia is on that list? I’m not going to tell you.”

Ajax have already signed Steven Berghuis from Feyenoord this summer.
