Davy Propper wants to end his “tough year” in style – with a win over England and Nations League glory.

But the Albion midfielder has sidestepped talk of interest in his services from Ajax.

Propper is preparing to face the Three Lions in the semi-finals of the Nations League tomorrow.

He is expected to be on the bench with Champions League winner Georginio Wijnaldum, Marten De Roon and Frenkie De Jong tipped to start.

The Argus has revealed Ajax are discussing Propper as a midfield successor to Barcelona-bound De Jong.

Propper said: “I have read about the alleged interest of Ajax.

“But I just finished a season in England and am now working on the Dutch national team.”

Propper, who missed the final Premier League fixtures due to a hamstring injury, said he was delighted the Seagulls stayed up.

But he admitted: “I had a tough year. The football was not always good.

“There was enormous pressure. Then struggle, passion and strength football are needed. It's good that we survived.

“The English competition is, of course, very heavy. The intensity is very high.

“The pace, the competition schedule with three matches per week. I've got better, stronger – although that’s not in a mass of muscle power.

“I have grown as a pro in everything.”

Propper, 27, has made no secret of his ambitions in club football.

He said: "Of course, I want to make further steps. Higher in the Premier League is beautiful.

“I would like to play in a big competition. Germany and Spain are also beautiful.”

Speaking at the squad camp in Portugal, he admitted he would also love to show what he can do in tonight’s semi-final in Guimaraes.

He also highlighted the fact he played a more defensive role for Albion last term than with his national team.

The 14-times capped former PSV man said: "It is great to be with the Oranje, I’m really proud, but it’s more fun with playing time. That's what I am here for."
