Bojan Krkic has finally stopped his humming and hawing and decided to try his luck in Holland, having agreed a one-year loan deal with Ajax. Barça has released an official statement confirming the agreement, which could subsequently be extended for a further season.

The deal represents a boon for Ajax boss Frank de Boer, who admitted his interest in Bojan in an interview with 'Ajax Life' magazine a few days back. 

"Bojan needs to work hard, provide more assists and score more goals", the Dutch legend told the magazine, having revealed that negotiations were underway with the forward's father.

"He's a good player and has experience of playing at the highest level. He isn't an out-and-out winger like Isaac Cuenca, but rather an extremely mobile attacker. As a coach, I'd be delighted if we got him", de Boer continued.


Signing a player whose price-tag is beyond a club's capabilities usually takes quite a bit of time to negotiate, with a very slim probability of pulling it off. Betis is well aware that the signing of Bojan Krkic will be quite complicated, given the nature of the club's financial limitations.

However, the early negotiations that have begun for the Catalan attacking-midfielder have shown promising signs and it seems the Andalusian club will persist. Bojan is still under contract at Barcelona and receives an annual salary of around €3 million – which would be hard for Betis to match.

Nevertheless, after spending two relatively successful years on loan in Italy, Bojan wants to return to Spain. The prospect of playing at a club with tradition, like Betis, with the offer of regular first-team football would be even more appealing. The player could be open to a loan stint at the Seville club, but would have to take a pay-cut to do so.
