Ajax have revealed that Daley Blind is suffering from a heart muscle inflammation.

The defender became dizzy during the Champions League defeat against Valencia two weeks ago and hasn’t played since.

Several tests were carried out on Blind, with Ajax confirming he would not play again until after the winter break. On Saturday the club confirmed the heart issue for the 29-year-old, who has already undergone a procedure in hospital.

No recovery period has been given for the Netherlands international, and he will not play any part in Ajax’s friendlies in January.
