Ajax players plead with De Boer to ignore Spurs

Ajax coach Frank de Boer admits his players are urging him not to quit for Tottenham.

Ajax have confirmed an approach from Spurs for De Boer.

He said: "I have a contract until the summer of 2017. [Ajax players] Davy Klaassen and Joël Veltman made me an urgent request not to leave, and it is a wonderful thing when players want you to stay.

"Of course, that also determines the decision you make. If an offer arrives, at a certain time you put both clubs next to each other, look at the plusses and minuses and then this kind of detail is very important."
