Nigel de Jong: It's too early to go back to Holland


Milan midfielder Nigel de Jong says it's too early to consider a return to his native Holland.

The Dutchman was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer but decided to stay in Italy, at least for one more season.

The 29-year-old was also rumoured to be close to joining Ajax but ruled out the possibility of joining them in the near future.

"A return to Ajax? Never say never, it would be nice," de Jong told Heroes Online.

"But expectations would be extremely high if I return at an older age.

"If [Ajax] wanted me during this summer's transfer window? No, I'm 29, I'm at the peak of my career.

"I've never felt so mentally and physically good so it's too early to return to Holland.

"I just want to keep playing abroad for as long as I can."
