Ajax has reached an agreement with youth player Abdallah Aberkane.  In Amsterdam, the central defender has signed a contract which will be effective from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2019, a total of three seasons.

Aberkane was born on May 5, 2000, in Gouda.  The youth international comes from ADO Den Haag.  Previously, he has played for CVV Jodan Boys (2012-2013) and SV Gouda (2007-2012).

“This is day is indescribable, it’s amazing.  I’m so happy that I’m going to play with this great club”, said a proud Aberkane, who will start next season with the U17s.  “Ajax is the best youth academy in Europe.  I chose Ajax for the development.”

For anyone who doesn’t know Aberkane, the Gouda-born talent gives a short description of himself: “I’m a multifunctional defender.  I can play centrally and as a back.  But my preference is to play in the right central back position.  I like going up.  My plan for next season: to show that I can add value to Ajax.”
