Ajax Interested in Onyewu
Oguchi Onyewu is in the middle of a bidding war for his services, reports Zac Lee Rigg ofGoal.com. The latest club to join the party is Ajax.
The 27-year-old's agent, Lyle Yorks, confirmed to Goal.com that the free agent is in discussions with the Dutch giants.
"[We're] in discussions. That is it at this point," he confirmed.
"We are in serious discussions with a few clubs at the moment. A decision should be taken next week."
After fulfilling his contract with Standard Liege, Onyewu put in a series of imposing shifts at the Confederations Cup with the United States national team to reach the final. Now available for free, several clubs are interested in the 6'3 defender, including Ajax, Birmingham City, and Genoa.
