Tete unaware of Bayern interest

Ajax Amsterdam defender Kenny Tete claims he’s fully focused on his club commitments amid reported interest from Bundesliga giants FC Bayern München.

The 20-year-old full-back is considered as one of the brightest prospects in Europe at the moment, and has already featured twice for the Dutch national team.

Tete, who’s on the brink of winning the Eredivisie title with de Godenzonen, has featured regularly for Frank De Boer’s side, making 30 appearances across all competitions, but admits he hasn’t heard much about the reported interest from Bayern.

“I saw those rumours come up, but I don’t know if the interest is serious,” he told De Telegraaf.

“I have not spoken with my agent because I’m just working on my recovery and I am concentrated on winning the championship.”

The academy graduate feels his development would be best suited staying at his current club and revealed that a new deal may be on the horizon.

“You have to play a lot more games to be well prepared for changing clubs, but if you’re ready for it you have to do it. But I’m only focused on Ajax,” he added.

“We are having conversations about extending my contract at Ajax – that runs until the summer of 2018.

“I’m a young player and Ajax and the Eredivisie give me a great stage to improve. That is what I want.”
