John set to wing his way into Ajax


Dutch newspaper Algameen Dagblad state that Eredivisie table-toppers Ajax are looking to bolster their attack with the loan signing of 21-year-old winger Ola John.

John is currently plying his trade in Portugal with Benfica, but is struggling to find a first team place and he has only featured in ten games so far this season in the Primeira Liga.

AD report that the two clubs have come to an agreement regarding the six-month loan deal, and John should arrive in Amsterdam until the end of the Eredivisie season.

John last played in Holland in 2012 with FC Twente, scoring nine goals in 46 games, before clinching a €9m move to Portugal in May that year. The Dutchman has netted just five times for the Portuguese giants in 59 appearances.

Frank de Boer’s Ajax side are set to compete in Turkey this weekend against Celtic, Galatasaray and Trabzonspor in the Antalya Cup friendly tournament.
