Ajax Yet To Seal Davids Deal

Ajax Cape Town are yet to close a deal to tie Lance Davids to the club after weeks of negotiating.

Soccer-Laduma has been trailing the back-and-forth contract talks as Davids looks to try and settle at the Mother City outfit, but Ajax have been slow in tying the player up on a long-term deal.

The 28-year-old midfielder returned to the club on a short-term contract in January and played a vital part in helping the Urban Warriors keep their top-flight status this season.

Ajax announced that they were close to closing the deal for the player, but his agent Rob Moore says that they are still waiting for things to be wrapped up.

"We have made it clear to Ajax that Lance wants a three-year deal rather than the two-year year deal plus option that they have offered," he told Soccer-Laduma.

"He returned to South Africa in January and took a contract that Ajax offered him, despite the fact that at the 11th hour they completely changed the goalposts. This was the second time in a row that Ajax had gone back on their word regarding a contract with Lance - the first time was under (Maarten) Stekelenburg.

"Out of his love for the club, Lance put this all behind him and in good faith, went on to play an important role to help the club stay up and ended up captaining the team in the games that counted towards the end of the season.

"Now it appears as if the directors can't remember the 2012/13 season already and this is how they reward their captain. We have been consistent in our message to Ajax that if there is no three-year deal, then we will look elsewhere. And now we've reached the point that if his contract issue is not resolved by the middle of next week, Lance will look elsewhere."
