Ajax has finalized the transfer of Christian Poulsen. The player has signed a contract in Amsterdam for a duration of two seasons, until June 30, 2014. The transfer is effective immediately.
Poulsen was born on February 28, 1980, in Asnæs, Denmark. The defending midfielder played last season for Evian Thonon Gaillard FC in France. Before that,
the former Danish international was active for Liverpool FC, Juventus FC, Sevilla FC, FC Schalke 04 and FC Kopenhagen.
Frank de Boer: “Christian Poulsen is a very good football player with a lot of experience. We were, of course, looking for a defending midfielder to replace Vurnon Anita. That’s how we came to him. The good thing with Christian is that he’s played at the very highest level. He’s a true sportsman and a real leader. We can definitely use that considering the young group we have right now.”
