Ajax are ready to send Emanuel Boakye out on loan.
Ajax are ready to send Emanuel Boakye out on loan and Twente and Heracles Almelo are looking at securing his services.
The defender is extremely highly rated with the corridors of the Amsterdam ArenA, but is unlikely to secure regular playing time in the new campaign.
Ajax coach Henk ten Cate feels he would be better served playing regularly than sitting on the bench and is eager to talk to interested parties.
"I think that a lot of Eredivisie clubs would like to have him and a loan would be good for him because he can play more then," said ten Cate.
Ajax technical director Martin van Geel has told AT5 that Twente and Heracles have lodged their interest.
Angelos Charisteas (pictured), meanwhile, is set to leave Ajax this summer.
The Greek goalscorer has slipped down the striking pecking order and ten Cate has told him he can move on.
"I won't fool him, he has got the time to seek out a new club," ten Cate told Ajax's website. "I hope that a nice club will report themselves for him.
"He is a perfect lad, a good professional and also a very nice person. For a two-striker system, he is fantastic. Only we don't play in that way and we have got many good attackers in the selection."
Eredivisie champions PSV Eindhoven are reported to be looking at signing Charisteas.
