Ajax have signed six youth players. B-juniors Rodney Sneijder, Roly Bonevacia, Ricardo van Rhijn, Bryan Ottenhoff, Jeffrey Dekker and Rik Schouw signed a contract that runs from 1 July 2008 to 1 July 2011 on Thursday.
Technical director Martin van Geel: ,,We are pleased that these guys choose to commit to Ajax in this way. It makes sense that we offer talented youth players a contract on a relatively young age. On the one hand because we have a lot of faith in the players who have signed with the club today, on the other to protect ourselves from the interest of clubs from the big football leagues in Europe.”
