Aston Villa To Miss Out On Target?

Aston Villa To Miss Out On Target?

According to John Jaakke, chairman of Dutch club Ajax, Villa and Spurs target (according to the press anyway) Wesley Sneijder is going nowhere.

The 23-year-old Dutch international has had talks with the player and said on RTV Noord-Holland:

'As things look now, Sneijder stays with Ajax. The contact that we have had with him points towards him staying in Amsterdam. We will do everything we can to make that happen.'

It is a shame but can't say i'm surprised, he has Champions League football at Ajax, unless they are trying to spark an auction for him.

yup, without the lure of champions league, it is difficult to see him moving, sorry to say even more difficult seeing him move to Villa without the lure of even the Uefa. Shame, good player, maybe next year!

lol, sod off Cubos!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tell you what, for those that haven't been to Brum of late, the old stereotypes really don't fit anymore, although I seldom got to the second city these days, I'm very impressed with the way the area has re-invented itself. I do think European footie is the key though, next season we'll have a good stab I'm sure.

A stab at something!... in Birmingham! Now that's a surprise :P If the guy wants to move from Ajax, he'll end up moving. Like he said, if you want to leave Ajax these days you need to kick up a fuss. I dont think its over yet. COYS

I think if MON could arrange for me to take Sneijder's wife out shopping we could swing it.

Take no notice of the what the club says, listen instead to the agent, no club wants a player on the field that doe's not want to be there, remember Alpay wanted to go, walked around with a sulk but on this occasion Villa stuck him in the stiffs and got nothing for him. Ajax wont be so happy to lose out on a million pound windfall.
