Star striker Bas Dost insists he is not considering a move to Ajax as he attempts to fire Heracles Almelo into Europe.

The 20-year-old has scored 10 goals this season to lift his club to fifth in the Eredivisie and it has been reported that teams around Europe are paying attention.

Ajax manager Martin Jol is among those thought to be considering a summer move for Dost amid intense speculation in Amsterdam.

But at present the Holland Under 21 international, who has been linked with the Premier League, is only interested in helping Heracles chase a Europa League place.

Dost is quoted as saying by VoetbalPrimeur: "We are having a great season with Heracles.

"We sit fifth in the table and why can't we qualify for Europe? We are determined to keep up our current form."

He added: "If a club want to sign me they can ask Heracles. But a transfer is not going to be addressed at the moment."
