Super Eagles goalkeeper Maduka Okoye denied the report linking him with Ajax. Okoye joined Sparta Rotterdam in the summer and has been a mainstay in the team since making his debut.
Speaking to ESPN, Okoye appreciated the report but stated he’s focused on his performance for Sparta Rotterdam.
“I have not heard anything yet – it is now mainly a rumour. It is nice to read that Ajax is interested. That means that I am performing well at Sparta.”
“My focus is now on Sparta. At the moment, nothing is playing yet. We will see what will happen.”
Also, the technical director of Sparta Rotterdam, Henk van Stee described the report as absolute nonsense.
“Absolute nonsense, ” Henk van Stee told Dutch football magazine Voetbal International via ajaxfanzone.nl.
Maduka Okoye has kept seven clean-sheets for Sparta Rotterdam and conceded twenty-eight goals.
He has also kept two clean sheets in his last two league games against VVV-Venlo and RKC Waalwijk.
