"Frank de Boer's still gleaming"

Have you just managed to get the ‘Three Lions’ melody out of your head?

The World Cup is over and so too are the hums of ‘It’s coming home’ among supporters but prepare for the tune to get embedded right back into your cerebrum.

Ajax have produced their own rendition of the football classic to announce the return of Daley Blind from Manchester United.

A deal was agreed between the clubs on Monday which will see Blind return to his boyhood club for a fee of £14.1m which could rise to £18.5m with performance-based add-ons.

Blind spent four years at United but has fallen down the pecking order in Jose Mourinho’s plans in recent seasons.

However that has done nothing to affect how the Dutch full-back will remember his time at Old Trafford.

“First of all I want to say how proud I am to be a part of the Manchester United family,” Blind wrote on Instagram. “To play for the biggest club in the world with such a history meant a lot to me.

“I had 4 great years with 4 trophy’s! I want to thank everyone, the Managers, coaches, the medical department, everyone who helped me to settle in so quick at the beginning, of course my teammates and last but definitely not least the fans!

“I want to thank you for all the love and support I received and still get. I will never forget some of the special games and moments, I will miss you ‘The Theatre of Dreams’! But now its time to go home.”
