However, the increasing interest in his talents has led them to consider making a quick and substantial profit on their option.
The Holland U21 international has scored 16 goals this season and is one of the candidates for the Belgian Pro League player of the season and young player of the season.
His confidence at times brought rebuke from the coaching staff at Ajax, but he was a revelation in Belgium that caught the attention of Leeds.

Long can play on both wings or as a striker and that versatility appeals to Marcelo Bielsa.
The Argentinian coach is about to finalize a new contract extension on Elland Road.
He hopes the club can add three new signings, including a left back, to start from their impressive ninth place finish in the Premier League.
