FORMER Southampton forward Dusan Tadic has left Ajax as a free agent.
The 34-year-old asked for his contract to be terminated earlier this week following lengthy discussions with club chiefs.

In a statement on the official Ajax website, he said: “The decision to leave the club has been a very difficult one.
“However, I think now is the right time, I feel that it is not only for me but also the best for the club to have a new start.
“The time I’ve had at Ajax and the successes I’ve been able to experience are indescribable feelings that I’ve never experienced before in my career, so I want to thank all the fans for the fantastic time I’ve had here.”
Tadic then revealed that he would like to return to the club as a coach in the future, adding: “As far as I’m concerned, this is not a final farewell, I will always remain an Ajax player and hope to return to Amsterdam in a different role in the near future, as a trainer.”
One person tweeted: “Why do I have a feeling Ten Hag is going to want Tadic.”
Another added: “Van De Beek out, Tadic In. Who says No?”
Tadic played under the management of Ten Hag when he joined Ajax from Southampton in 2018.
Prior to his departure this week, he was the only remaining player from the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-final in 2019.
