Ajax coach De Boer tribute to Newcastle signing Siem de Jong

Ajax coach Frank de Boer has paid tribute to new Newcastle United signing Siem de Jong.

The midfielder left Ajax for Newcastle last week.

De Boer said: "We were able to enjoy one more year with Siem.

"I do not begrudge him. He is a great example of the new talents. He was always there for everyone, a real team player."

De Boer added: "I was expecting to leave. I was told he was likely to leave, so I was prepared for it."
