Ajax signs Danilho Doekhi

Ajax has reached an agreement with Danilho Doekhi.  The defender has signed a contract that will be effective per July 1, 2016, for three years, until June 30, 2019.

Doekhi was born on June 30, 1998, in Rotterdam.  The youth international comes from Excelsior, where he has already made his debut with the first team.  Prior to that, he was active with Xerxes (2004-2006).  It was not a difficult decision to come to Ajax.  “Ajax is the biggest club in the Netherlands.  And they already have a great plan for me.”

Doekhi (Winston Bogarde’s nephew) is a central defender, who is also comfortable at midfield.  “I and physically fit, I have insight, and I’m not scared to play.  I would like to develop into a better player at Ajax, and naturally I’m hoping to make it to the first team.”
