The Spanish press has been full of stories recently claiming that Barcelona have made De Ligt their number one target to strengthen their defence in January.

However, speaking to Ziggo Sport, De Ligt’s agent, Barry Hulshoff, has ruled out a January exit for the 18-year-old centre-back.

He said, “The intention is to stay at Ajax at least until summer.

“He signed a new contract in Amsterdam in August 2017. He is fixed until the summer of 2021.”
