Ajax has signed Mitchell Bakker (Purmerend, June 20, 2000). The youth international is playing for the Ajax U19 this season.
Bakker has been playing in Ajax’s youth academy since 2010. He’s signed a contract that is retroactively effective per July 1, 2016, for three years, until June 30, 2016. It’s the left-footed defender’s first contract.
Bakker is happy with his contract. “This is the start. This is great. Now I need to go further. First I need to become a steady asset with the Ajax U19s, and try to be first in the Youth League pool. Then hopefully in two or three years, make it to Ajax 1.”
