Spartak Moscow still hopes to be able to take over Quincy Promes from Ajax in the short term.

According to head coach Domenico Tedesco, the Russian club is working hard on the transfer.

"I follow the news and the management informs me about it. We are waiting for the problem to be resolved. As a coach, I naturally want him to come as soon as possible so that he can strengthen the team. The club is doing everything it can," said Tedesco on Sunday. against

The director of Spartak Moscow said on Thursday that the private situation of Promes - the Orange international was arrested in December on suspicion of involvement in a stabbing and is still a suspect - is not comfortable for him.

"We do not want any punishment on our plate. We are now in talks with Ajax about this and have offered various options, but we are not yet in agreement," said director Yevgeny Melezhikov.

The 29-year-old Promes, who already played for Spartak between 2014 and 2018, can still leave because the Russian transfer market is open until February 25.

Spartak would like to rent Promes with an option to buy.

Ajax already anticipated the possible departure of Promes by renting attacker Oussama Idrissi from Sevilla just before the close of the winter transfer period (in the Netherlands).
