Ajax signs contract with Justin Kluivert

Ajax has signed a contract with Justin Kluivert(Amsterdam, May 5, 1999).  The Under 17s player has been with Ajax’s youth academy since 2007.  He has signed a contract that is effective per July 1, 2016, for three years, until June 30, 2019.  It is the forward’s first contract.

16 year-old Kluivert beamed from ear to ear after signing his contract.  “I’ve been playing with Ajax for nine years.  This means a lot to me.  It’s a reward for everything that I have done so far.”

Kluivert has drawn attention this season for his beautiful goals with the U17s.  “I’ve played a good season and scored some nice goals.  I’ve also played with the Under 19s quite a bit.  My goal is to be a squad player with the Under 19s next year.  I want to be important for the team.  After that, I hope to head for the first team quickly.  I want to play in the ArenA.”

Later today, an interview with Justin and his father Patrick Kluivert will follow on Ajax TV.
