Ryan Babel has ruled out a loan move to Ajax, confirming he is happy at Liverpool and wants to stay.

The Dutch international winger has failed to hold down a regular first-team place during his time on Merseyside, with the majority of his Premier League appearances coming as a late substitute.

Earlier this month Babel reportedly revealed he would be interested in re-joining Ajax in the January transfer window in order to secure regular football ahead of the World Cup finals.

However, the 22-year-old has stated those comments were taken out of context and that he has told manager Rafa Benitez that he is not looking for a move.

“I didn’t say any of those things,” he told the Liverpool Echo. “I did an interview in Holland and I don’t know who in England got hold of it but it was the worst translation I have ever seen.

“The fact is I’m very happy here and I don’t want to leave to go anywhere. I just want to concentrate on playing.

“Yes, there is a lot of competition for places at Liverpool but that’s the same at every top club. It was like that when I was at Ajax and that isn’t a problem for me.

“I heard about what was being reported when I was away with Holland. When I got back to Liverpool I went straight to the manager and told him it wasn’t true. He accepted that and there is no problem.”
