According to Timber, he is unsure about leaving Ajax, especially with no guarantee of Champions League and first-team action at the Theatre of Dreams.

The 20-year-old suggested that he would rather continue with Ajax than gamble on his future.

"Of course, I can develop further at Ajax – I am 100 per cent sure of that. I don’t feel like I’m done at the club. But I can also develop at other clubs," Timber said as quoted by Manchester Evening News.
"I am now focusing on the upcoming international matches and then go on holiday. Then I’ll have to think about it some more. In the end, my gut feeling will be the deciding factor," he added.
