Ajax boss Martin Jol says the prospect of resigning Ryan Babel from Liverpool “has appeal” after comments from the Dutch winger last week suggesting he’d be open to a return.
Frustrated by lack of first team action, Babel last week said he’d be tempted to move back to Holland in the January transfer window in order to make a claim for a place in the Dutch World Cup squad next summer.
And Jol says he’s taken into account Babel’s plea.
He said, “I’ve read what he said, but I don’t have anything to say at the moment.
“Babel does appeal as a good option, but it all depends on whether we need him when the time comes.”
Babel signed for Liverpool in the summer of 2007 for around £11.5million.
