Ajax keeping tabs on Hull City star, over £15m wanted

Hull City winger Jaden Philogene is being monitored by Dutch giants Ajax, reporter Tom Collomosse has said on X.

Hull City recruited Philogene from Aston Villa last summer and the 22-year-old has been a huge hit since. He’s emerged as one of the Championship‘s standout talents, managing eight goals and six assists in 22 games for the Tigers.

Philogene caught the eye with Cardiff City on loan but wasn’t able to conjure up the same level of end product. A loan stint with Stoke City yielded only a single goal in 11 appearances too.

Under Liam Rosenior though, the London-born starlet has been unplayable at times, and his talents haven’t gone unnoticed.

Writing on X, Daily Mail reporter Tom Collomosse states Dutch giants Ajax are among the clubs keeping tabs on Philogene. He notes former club Aston Villa hold a £15m buyback option for the winger, but Hull City will want more than that from other sides looking to buy him.

Inevitable summer interest

Philogene has been mentioned in transfer speculation on plenty of occasions this season and it seems inevitable that Hull City will see their resolve tested this summer. He’s proven he’s got end product to go with his exciting flair and at only 22, the future is bright for the young winger.

Those keen won’t be able to get him on the cheap though. And even if any admirers are to strike a deal, Aston Villa’s £15m buyback clause means they have a direct route to recruiting their former academy star.

Ajax are renowned for signing impressive young players, developing them into stars in the Eredivisie and often selling them on for big profits. They’ve dipped into the Championship for recruitment before too, bringing in Chuba Akpom from Middlesbrough last summer after his standout campaign on Teesside.

Time will tell if they advance their interest in Philogene, but if they do, it seems unlikely that they’ll be the only ones on the Hull City ace’s tail this summer.
