Agent: De Boer interested in Everton and Valencia

‘We are very confident we will win’ – Fans ahead the AFCON final

The agent of Ajax Amsterdam manager Frank De Boer has revealed his client is interested in joining either Everton or Valencia ahead of the new season.

The 45-year-old had enjoyed a hugely successful spell in the Eredivisie, claiming four consecutive league titles and on the verge of securing a fifth crown this term.

Despite having one more year remaining on his contract with the Dutch club, De Boer appears to be seeking a new challenge in one of Europe's top leagues.

His representative, Guido Albers, has highlighted two potential teams that would interest him, although he was quick to point out that he had not entered talks with any clubs as yet.

"He'd love to join a club like Everton or Valencia," Albers told NOS. "It's all about the right philosophy and how they play football. That is what Frank is looking for.

"I have told Ajax that there is no other club and I have not held discussions with anyone. Frank says he now needs his focus on becoming champions, so I do not trouble him."
