Ajax coach Erik ten Hag has admitted that Andre Onana, who has been linked heavily with a move to Tottenham will be allowed to leave the club at the end of the season.

There have been contradictory reports regarding the future of Onana for the past few weeks.

The Express initially reported Tottenham were battling Chelsea for the goalkeeper’s signature.

However,  De Telegraaf (as relayed by Inside Futbol) claimed earlier this week that Ajax were becoming increasingly confident of hanging on to the Cameroon international for one more season.

The 24-year-old poured cold water over the report by coming out a few days ago and going public with his desire to leave the Johan Cruijff Arena in search of a new challenge (AD).

Ten Hag has now admitted that while he would like to keep the shot-stopper at Amsterdam, the club have an agreement in place to let him leave if the right offer comes in.

Speaking to Ajax Showtime, Ten Hag said: “Andre is very important to us, of course we do not want to lose him.

“It is true that agreements were made last year (for Onana to leave in 2020) if the right club and price comes up.”

Spurs Web Opinion

We will probably sign a goalkeeper to replace Michel Vorm but I cannot see us going for a potential first-choice keeper this summer. While it is clear based on reports over recent weeks that the club have already started thinking about Lloris’ long-term replacement, we will likely have to prioritise certain positions over others this summer given the financial constraints involved.
