Ajax Amsterdam CEO (Chief Executive Officer) Edwin Van Der Sar has signed a new contract at the club.

The former Manchester United goalkeeper took to his official Twitter account to announce the news of his new Ajax Amsterdam deal.

The Ajax Amsterdam and Manchester United legend spent six years at Old Trafford.

He won four Premier League titles and the 2008 Champions League title while the Dutchman was at Manchester United.

Edwin Van Der Sar became the Ajax Amsterdam CEO three years ago and he has signed a new four-year deal until 2023 thus ending speculation about a possible return to Manchester United.

The Red Devils are on the search for a technical director and Edwin Van Der Sar has been linked with the role.

Edwin Van Der Sar has previously talked about the possibility of going back to Old Trafford though the former Dutch international shot stopper said that he would only go back to Manchester United for the Chief Executive role rather than the Sporting Director role on offer at the moment.

Apart from Edwin Van Der Sar, other Manchester United players like Rio Ferdinand and Darren Fletcher have been linked with the technical director position as the Red Devils try to bridge the gap between them and the leading teams in European football.
