Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek tells Chelsea: Forget about me

Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek has shut down talk of a move to Chelsea.

Despite Chelsea's transfer ban, it's been suggested in Italy they could sign Van de Beek in January with the aim to taking him to London next summer.

However, after victory over PSV Eindhoven in yesterday's Johan Cruyff Shield, Van de Beek responded to the Blues rumours.

"You'd better forget that," the 22-year-old said.

"There is so much on it (the internet). You just have to check what is true. I'm not so concerned with it.

"There are a lot of things on it that aren't true, but that's not that important right now. I haven't heard anything about it."
