Marc Overmars doesn’t think Toby Alderweireld or Jan Vertonghen will be returning to Ajax this summer.

Ajax have managed to bring Klaas Jan Huntelaar and Daley Blind back to Amsterdam in recent years, while other ex-players are constantly linked with a return as well.

Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are two of the players constantly rumoured to be heading back to Ajax but Marc Overmars doesn’t think the Tottenham duo will be back at the Johan Cruijff ArenA anytime soon.

He told Ziggo Sport, “Of course those players always say that they want to come back to Amsterdam. But then when I always call them you often hear that you have to wait a few years. So I think with these two players we have to be patient and see what the future holds. It is still too early now.”

Verthonghen (31) and Alderweireld (30) are both contracted to Tottenham until 2020.
