Abubakari Yakubu on loan to Vitesse

Abubakari Yakubu will play for Vitesse in the upcoming season. The midfielder has been loaned to the club from Arnhem for one season.

‘Yakubu has not played enough minutes for Ajax in the past season. We think it is better for his development to play regularly on the highest level for a year,' says Ajax's coach Ronald Koeman.

Yakubu has played in Ajax's first team from the 1999-2000 season. He won the national title with Ajax in 2002 and 2004 and the Amstel Cup in 2002. Yakubu has played 65 league matches for Ajax 1 so far.
