Twente to loan Ünüvar from Ajax, purchase option not up for discussion for Mislintat

Transfer news from Eredivisie

Dutch side FC Twente are set to secure the loan signing of Ajax youngster Naci Ünüvar. However, any talks of a purchase option for the 18-year-old midfielder will not be entertained by FC Twente’s technical director, Sven Mislintat.

Ünüvar’s journey to Twente

Ünüvar, who was born in Amsterdam, joined Ajax’s academy at the young age of six and made his first-team debut last season. The attacking midfielder has since made 15 appearances for Ajax’s senior team, scoring one goal in the process.

Mislintat’s transfer approach

Mislintat, who joined FC Twente as technical director last summer, is known for his strict transfer policy and reluctance towards including purchase options in loan deals. This approach may be questioned by Ajax, who would prefer to have a purchase option in place for one of their promising academy products.
