van der vaartLast week Ajax coach Frank de Boer was open about wanting Van der Vaart to return to the club where his career began, as he sees the Dutch international as a perfect striker for the formation he wants to play.

Van der Vaart himself has always stated his intention to remain at Hamburg until his career ends, but with the club currently fighting off relegation and money worries they may wish to sell the 31-year-old this summer.

Speaking to SBS Shownieuws Van der Vaart was open about the possibility of returning to Amsterdam in the future.

He said, “I have always said that Ajax is my club. Also i obviously know coach Frank de Boer very well.”

“”But for now I will still be full focused on Hamburg.”

Van der Vaart made 117 league appearances for Ajax in five seasons before originally moving to Hamburg in 2005. Transfers to Real Madrid followed, but the Dutchman is now back at Hamburg, where he has a contract until 2015.
