Highly rated Ajax Amsterdam attacker David Neres has revealed that his long-term future lies with the Dutch Eredivisie giants despite the numerous transfer rumours linking him with a move away from the club.

David Neres made this known in an exclusive interview with Dutch media outlet Algemeen Dagblad.

The Brazilian international star had been touted as a possible transfer addition to Premier League clubs like Everton and Liverpool.

French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) are also interested in the player.

David Neres came to European prominence during the last campaign as a part of the Ajax Amsterdam team that took Europe by storm.

He scored 12 goals and also provided 15 assists for Ajax Amsterdam in 50 games in all competitions as the Dutch giants sealed two major trophies.

Ajax Amsterdam won the Dutch league title and the Dutch Cup to seal a domestic double for the first time in over a decade (since 2007).

David Neres and Ajax Amsterdam also reached the semifinals of the Champions League before a late goal from compatriot and Tottenham Hotspur attacker Lucas Moura eliminated the Dutch giants.

Ajax had won the first leg at Spurs 1-0 before the Premier League side sealed a final spot via the away goals rule after a 3-2 win at the Amsterdam Arena.
