vdv beyThe 32-year-old was heavily linked with a move back to the Amsterdam Arena in the summer after leaving Hamburg, but instead decided to join Spanish side Real Betis.

His decision to join Betis hasn’t paid off yet though, with Van der Vaart making only two La Liga starts all season, and talk of a return to Ajax has surfaced again.

When asked by ZiggoSportTotaal about a return, Van der Vaart responded, “That question has come up very often.”

“Everyone knows that Ajax are my club, and I have seriously thought about it, but until now nothing has come of it yet.”

Van der Vaart came through the Ajax academy before making 155 appearances for the club.
