Alderweireld Says 'No' To City
Transfer target, Toby Alderweireld has said 'No' to a move to Norwich City after apparently failing to agree personal terms.
Speculation that the player thought the club were beneath him was scotched by his agent, Soren Lerby, who said:
'The problem was not that Norwich didn't fit Toby's ambitions, but we simply failed to agree terms,' Lerby told Algemeen Dagblad.
The player himself though, doesn't seem in a hurry to leave Amsterdam.
'There is still other interest and a transfer takes a long time,' Alderweireld told voetbal.nl. 'We're only in mid-July it can still be done. If a nice club comes, it can go fast.'
'If there is nothing, then I'll just stay at Ajax.'
So, at least he didn't think that we weren't good enough - it just looks like he wanted more money than David McNally thought he was worth.
No point paying over the odds, I expect the next target on the list will become clear soon.
