No Edgar Davids for FC Dallas

LONDON (AFP) - Veteran Dutch midfielder Edgar Davids has completed his move from Tottenham to his first club Ajax. Davids, 33, has signed an 18-month contract which is likely to see him end his career at the club he played for between 1991 and 1996, helping them to win the 1992 UEFA Cup and the Champions League in 1995. He subsequently wore the colours of AC Milan, Juventus, Barcelona and Internazionale before being lured to London by fellow Dutchman Martin Jol, the Spurs boss, in 2005.

FC Dallas had been making a run at the Tottenham midfielder over the last six weeks but were unable to meet Davids contract demands. It is believed by many that the huge Beckham contract offered may have pushed up Davids asking price and that the MLS side was unwilling to meet the demands.

He had grown frustrated this season at being unable to command a regular starting place and Jol admitted the pair had clashed. "He played last year but didn't this year," Jol said. "I had so many arguments with him, because in Holland he's a legend. "He will ask me 'why am I not playing' so I tell him. He is a legend and was a very good pro for us - he played on the left when I needed him. It was a difficult situation, so for him it's better if he plays regular football because of his age."
