Ajax stopper Schuurs plays down January move to Liverpool

Ajax defender Per Schuurs has played down speculation he could join Liverpool.

The Dutchman, 21, has been linked with a move to Anfield this January, with Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk both sidelined due to long-term injuries.

But Schuurs insists he is focused on developing and winning trophies with Ajax.

"I hear and read it [Liverpool rumours] too," he told SBS6, as quoted by Voetbal Primeur, after Tuesday's match against the Reds.

"It's my first season as a basic player at Ajax. I want to play here for a few more seasons and win prizes. I'm not really working on that yet."
