    New season started and the old thread title was redundant (plus we had way over 500 posts).

    A bit belated, but a big thank you from the Eredivisie to Rodney and Florian!

    Ajax have made a bid of 1m for Rajkovic, but he's also available for loan apparently and we may opt for the latter instead. Barca have offered us Fontas and dos Santos, but Fontas doesn't want to leave Spain. No news yet on dos Santos.

    Here is a more specific comment on the Ajax financial situation from Catanaccio.NL
    It's a fair report and you can always use Google translate to get a workable English translation.

    They can keep Fontas. he's injured all the time anyways. JDS on the other hand I would take in a heart beat

    this article offers some hope for Anita. It says that he has yet to meet with the manager to discuss the role that he will play on the team. Lets hope that if the plan is for him to play fullback then he'll turn them down.

    Nobody from Barca wants to be on loan at Ajax. How many have turned us down so far? 3 or 4 by my count.

    The problem is that Ajax are just not bold enough. We should be asking for Messi on loan anyone else is just not worth the time.:p

    This year? It seems to me that Fontas is the only one who's turned us down. That other defender was going to come until he got injured

    Armenteros told swedish media today clubs are back talking after Ajax's rejection of Heracles' counter offer.

    until it is reported that Newcastle has come to terms with him, having a medical means nothing. It seems that he still has yet to discuss his role with the coach meaning the move is still up in the air

    Nah he's definitely going imo. Money is also an issue and he can earn a lot more at Tyneside. So 8,5-10m depending on bonusses for Anita and probably around 1,5 for Janssen.

    Will be interesting who Overmars has lined up with a little more to spend now.

    Probably a midfield of Blind, Serero/Janssen and Siem with Dijks LB. I hope Boccara makes the bench.

    Should have signed with Spurs playing in front Vertonghen and behind VDV while Modric leaving.

    ^It's the money plain and simple. Raiola apparently gets £1.8M from this deal; great work if you can get it!

    I gave up on Vurnon the moment he said he declined Ajax' offer and demanded more money. I never thought he was the kind to give up CL football and gamble his career for a bit more money.
