Ajax director Marc Overmars has confirmed that Barcelona wants to send some of their players on loan to the Amsterdam club. However, he is clear that Ajax will not become a feeder club.

Reports in Spain recently stated that Ajax and Barcelona were in talks over a partnership that would see the Catalan giants send players on loan to Amsterdam.

Speaking to NOS, Overmars confirmed the talks, “We know that we are on good terms with Barcelona. Barcelona wants to talk to us to see if they can loan players.

“Of course we are not going to get too many players from Barcelona. We are not a branch of that club.

“We already have talents in our own youth academy. These would be slightly older players, or players who just broke through. But: the plans have not been developed that far.”
