Martin Jol expects Edgar Davids to complete a move to Ajax this weekend.
Martin Jol has revealed that he expects Edgar Davids to complete a move to Ajax this weekend.
Davids has slipped down the pecking order at Tottenham this term and Spurs gave their blessing for the tough-tackling midfielder to enter into talks with Ajax.
Jol feels the midfielder is close to wrapping up a deal with a club he served with great distinction during the 1990s.
"We are talking to Ajax and I feel he has got an agreement, that is the signal I am getting from Holland, and we maybe have to wait 24 hours and the deal will probably be done," Jol told Sky Sports News.
Jol has admitted that the emergence of Tom Huddlestone at White Hart Lane resulted in Davids slipping out of the first-team picture.
"I felt it was good for the club to have a player like him (Davids), he had a good season but we have had some new players coming in - Tom Huddlestone is one for the future and I chose to play him," added Jol.
"It was difficult for Edgar to take."
