Ajax defender-cum-midfielder Vurnon Anita is ready to snub interest from English Premier League giants Chelsea and Liverpool in order to remain in Amsterdam.

The 23-year-old was a key figure in Ajax’s Eredivisie title win this season and quickly began to win admirers across Europe.

But despite the attraction of a move to England, Anita is instead growing excited at the prospect of forming a top notch midfield with Theo Jansen, Christian Eriksen and Siem de Jong at the Amsterdam ArenA.

"Vurnon is all for Ajax", said the player’s agent Lulofs Harry to AD when questioned about the likelihood of the Dutchman quitting the Eredivisie.

"He is looking forward to the new season and also Champions League football", continued Harry.

"He looks forward to forming a midfield with Theo Jansen and Christian Eriksen and Siem de Jong.

"If there is a really good offer then naturally that goes to Ajax."

Under contract until 2014 with Ajax, should Chelsea, Liverpool, or any other side have designs on the Holland international this summer, a bid of at least €15M is expected to be required just to gain the Amsterdam club’s attention.
