Manchester United transfer target Viktor Fischer admits he’s happy to stay with Ajax, and reveals he’s not thinking about joining any other club, according to talkSPORT.

The 18-year-old Denmark international broke into the Ajax first-team this season, and has impressed, leading to speculation Manchester United could look to bring him to the Premier League.

But Fischer has insisted he’s keen to stay in Holland, saying he’s too young to think about leaving Ajax.

“The best thing for me is to stay at Ajax – I do not think about other clubs,” Fischer told Algemeen Dagblad and was quoted on talkSPORT.

“The most important thing for me is to play in the senior squad so I have a chance to prove myself.”

The Danish youngster earned his first full cap for Denmark earlier this season, and has been compared to fellow international compatriot and Ajax teammate Christian Eriksen.

Fischer primarily operates behind the strikers, although he can find the net himself – he’s scored three goals in nine Eredivisie appearances. Scouts from the majority of Europe’s top clubs have watched the playmaker this season, and Manchester United in particular are reportedly interested in bringing Fischer to England.

Sir Alex Ferguson was eager to bring the teenage starlet to Old Trafford last summer, but Ajax rebuffed their advances, according to talkSPORT.

And it now seems likes United will have to wait a little longer if they want sign the highly-rated midfielder, as Fischer looks set to continue his development in Holland.
