Ajax defender Alderweireld eager to make Atletico Madrid move

Ajax defender Toby Alderweireld is ready to move to Atletico Madrid.

A move to Spain is nearing completion and the 24-year-old admits Atletico are a club a player has to listen to if they come calling.

"At Atletico there is a four-year deal waiting for me. The deal is not complete yet as I still have a medical test," he told De Telegraaf.

"I expect this will be today and after it we can work out some details.

"Everyone knows I wanted to make the next step. When a club like Atletico shows up you are always willing to listen.

"Negotiations have started and I will be relieved when they succeed."
