Dutch legend cuts down Timber amid Man Utd links

Erik ten Hag is reportedly keen to sign Ajax defender Jurrien Timber if he joins Manchester United from the Dutch side, but Ruud Gullit has cast doubt on his ability to play in the Premier League.

The former Chelsea manager told Ajax Showtime: "I think Timber is a very good player, but whether he can be a defender in England?

"You also play against Burnley and West Brom. The top seven strikers are all world-beaters.

"I think he is a very good footballer, but I have my doubts about whether he is a good defender."
