The Ghanaian international, has revealed the reason behind his decision to renew his running contract with the Dutch giants.
Kudus who is currently on the rather of Manchester United, Everton, Barcelona and a hosts of other clubs, is willing to sign a new contract with Ajax ahead of a possible future transfer.
The 22-year-old Ghana international has been in impressive form recently, scoring six goals and providing two assists in his last eight Eredivisie outings.
This has led to increasing speculation that he could end up at Old Trafford this summer, with United boss Erik ten Hag reportedly keen to add him to his squad.
He also emphasized that he is only focused on the title race right now, and that his agent is managing the contract extension negotiations. He added:
Kudus also revealed his disappointment at Ajax blocking a potential move to Everton last summer but insisted his “full focus was back on Ajax” as soon as the window closed.
”The fact that Ajax blocked a transfer to Everton last summer disappointed me. I thought it was time for a new chapter in my career, because I wasn’t playing here. But the moment the transfer market closed, my full focus was back on Ajax.”
“I’m very happy at Ajax right now, but I’ll be even happier if we win the double,” said the Ghana star as quoted by the Telegraaf.
“Why wouldn’t I want to renew my contract? I’m playing and developing well. Now it’s about negotiation & being valued. When the time is right, we’ll see how it goes.” He concluded.
The Eredivisie giants are keen to tie Kudus down to a long-term contract, which would also serve as a deterrent to any potential suitors.
Kudus has expressed a willingness to stay in Amsterdam despite active interest from former Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, who now leads English side Manchester United as their manager.
