Marseille, English & Italian clubs want Ajax’s Joel Veltman

Ajax face losing defensive stalwart Joel Veltman with Marseille and other clubs expressing interest, Voetbal International reports.

The 28-year-old is a homegrown product of Ajax and has played in the first team for the past eight seasons.

But according to VI, not only Marseille but several Premier League sides and a ‘top’ Serie A club have a concrete interest.

The English teams include some fighting against relegation, so any move for Veltman would depend on them staying up.

Veltman is entering the final year of his contract and it is ‘very likely’ he will leave this summer.

The Transfermarkt website values Veltman at €8m, taking his contract situation into account.

The centre-back has made 25 appearances for Ajax this season and has 21 Netherlands caps to his name.
