In the past few days, Stam’s name has been heavily linked with the vacant position at Leeds United, while he is also said to be in the running for the Ajax job.

However, his agentĀ Henk Timmer has told Voetbal International, that Stam will remain loyal to Reading FC who gave him his big chance in England unless a big club from the Premier League come knocking.

Timmer said, “There is a lot of interest in Jaap, from English clubs and elsewhere in Europe.

“But he is loyal to Reading, the club has given him the chanceĀ in English football. If a big club in the Premier League knocks it might be a different story, the club is so realistic also. But as it stands now Jaap wants to finish his job at Reading. ”

Stam joined Reading last summer and guided them to the Championship play-off final, but they lost out on promotion to Huddersfield Town. His contract lasts until 2018 with the option of another year.
