De Jong urging Man City to sign Ajax defender Van der Wiel

Nigel de Jong is urging Manchester City to move for Ajax defender Gregory van der Wiel.

De Jong, himself a former Ajax player, reckons Van der Wiel, 22, will solve a problem position for City next season.

"I know that Greg is on our wanted list at Manchester City," said De Jong. "I have pleaded with them to sign him, as we could use a good right-back.

"The tempo of English football will make him stronger still and I've recommended him to City's management."
