Ajax chief Overmars: Chelsea blocked Van Ginkel loan move

Ajax chief Marc Overmars says Chelsea signing Marco van Ginkel was wanted on-loan by the Dutch giants.

Overmars revealed he was an admirer of the Dutchman, but Chelsea wouldn't countenance a loan deal.

"He made no mistake, because he really wanted to come to Ajax, but Chelsea did not let him," Overmars told De Telegraaf.

"Would it have been better for his development to go to Ajax? Yes, 1000 per cent.

"We tried to get him on loan in this transfer window but unfortunately Chelsea would not let him go."
