Atletico Madrid's bid for Toby Alderweireld has been rejected by Ajax. The Dutch club have told the Spanish side they must pay at least 15 million Euros to secure the Belgian defender's coveted signature.

Numerous teams have been linked with the Ajax man's signature, but it is Spanish side Atletico Madrid who are favourites to land the talented defender.

"We have rejected the offer from Atletico Madrid for Toby Alderweireld," director of football Marc Overmars said.

"We were contacted this weekend but it was not considered sufficient for a player of the national team of Belgium."
