Stoke's Gudjohnsen eyeing Ajax move

Stoke City flop Eidur Gudjohnsen is set to move on with Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam calling.

The Icelandic striker has not enjoyed a particularly positive time at the Britannia Stadium and is believed to be prepared to take a pay cut to exit the club.

Gudjohnsen, the 32-year old former Chelsea star, has revealed there is interest from some clubs in the USA and Dubai but confirmed his first thought was to link up with Ajax.

"I'm able to sign large contracts in America and Dubai, but my preference is to go to Amsterdam," said Gudjohnsen.

"It is not about money. The sporting challenge is paramount because my career would gain a new impetus.

"Because my contract is up at the end of the season, I can already leave Stoke for free.

"I even think that if Ajax can do a deal, Stoke will pay a portion of my salary. I'm willing to settle for much less."
