CRISTIAN CHIVU has pledged his future to Ajax, despite his performances in Euro 2000 impressing a number of potential suitors.

The 19-year-old Romanian international, who scored the opening goal in his side`s 3-2 win over England, has been linked with Inter, Juventus, Deportivo La Coruna, Sunderland and Real Zaragoza.

"I want to remain at Ajax until the end of my contract," said the talented full back, in the wake of reports suggesting that Deportivo would splash out £7.25 million in a bid to bring him to Spain.

Ajax have also reaffirmed their desire to keep Chivu at the Amsterdam ArenA, and he seems set to continue learning his trade in Holland.

A proposed move for Norwegian left back Andre Bergdolmo apparently does not affect the Amsterdam outfit`s desire to hang onto their young Romanian.
