Information reaching KickOff.com from the Dutch capital is that Stekelenburg has already agreed to take over from Cor Ten Bosch at the Topklasse – Zondag (Top Class – Sunday) league club next season.
AFC (Amsterdamsche FC), who are based in Stekelenburg’s home town of Amsterdam – currently sit in position 13, the relegation play-off position with 20 points from 18 games.
Word is that Stekelenburg will take over in the new season but is already thrown a keen interest in the proceedings at the club.
Stekelenburg was fired by Ajax last October after a difficult start to the season that left the Urban Warriors in a bottom half position that they are still battling to get out from four months later.
The 40 year-old had been in charge for 15 months.
