Ajax manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed that he would be interested in signing Daley Blind from Manchester United this summer.

Blind is entering the final year of his contract at Old Trafford and had been linked with a return to Ajax, the club he left to join United in 2014.

Ten Hag has now revealed that the club are "doing everything" to sign the 28-year-old, but hinted that a deal may not be straightforward.

"[He is] a player with a lot of experience, in the Premier League and in the Dutch national team," Ten Hag is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"He is a stable personality. Just like the arrival of Dusan Tadic, this also counts as a considerable effort of the club. We are doing everything, but it also depends on other parties.

"He can handle both positions well, both as a central defender and as a controlling midfielder."

Blind made just seven Premier League appearances for United last season.
