Thulani Serero seems unlikely to feature for Ajax Amsterdam this season after it emerged he had not been given a squad number by the club for the 2016/17 season.

“Thulani was not in the selection I received at the beginning of the season,” said Ajax’s new coach Peter Bosz, according to reports in Holland.

“What the reason for it is, I cannot answer as a trainer, that is up to the club.”

Reports in Holland, however, suggest that this is Ajax policy, because Serero can walk out of the side on a free transfer when his contract expires in the summer of 2017. Thus, the Dutch giants are determined to sell Serero, either in this transfer window, or in January.

Serero has been at Ajax Amsterdam for five seasons, joining in 2011 from Ajax Cape Town.
