Christian Poulsen to leave Ajax

Ajax midfielder Christian Poulsen reveals that he will leave the Dutch club at the end of the season.

Ajax midfielder Christian Poulsen has revealed that he will leave the Dutch giants when his contract expires in the summer.

Poulsen has helped Ajax win back-to-back league titles since his arrival in 2012, but the Denmark international has admitted that he is keen to end his spell in Amsterdam on a positive note.

The 34-year-old told the club's official website: "It was a difficult decision because I'm really enjoying myself at Ajax. My family is too. We think that it's a nice club with great people.

"We wanted to think carefully about it. My decision was taken with my brains instead of my heart - if I had gone the latter, then I would have re-signed.

"But I want a nice way to say goodbye and I do that now, as a fit player with another championship."

Poulsen, who spent a year with Liverpool during the 2010-11 campaign, has made 42 appearances this season.
