Young striker Lassina Traore will remain at Ajax for the rest of the season despite interest from Sparta Rotterdam.

Sparta Rotterdam are set to lose striker Lars Veldwijk to South Korea this month and they are keen to add a replacement to the squad.

Ajax youngster Lassina Traore was a target, but according to Voetbal International, the striker will remain in Amsterdam.

Ryan Babel is set to join on loan but Erik ten Hag does not want to see Traore, who scored on his Eredivisie debut against ADO Den Haag, leave.

Sparta are now set to turn their attentions to Telstar forward Reda Kharchouch.
