Ajax signs Adham el Idrissi

Ajax has contracted Adham el Idrissi (Amsterdam, March 17, 1997). The under 19 junior has been playing in Ajax’s youth academy since 2006. He signed a contract which will be effective per July 1, 2015, for three years, until June 30, 2018.

It’s the first contract for the centre forward. “This is a special moment in my career. It feels very special, especially with my family here”, said El Idrissi about his contract.

He’s clear about his short-term goals: “I want to play in the ArenA. I also want to continue to do my best for the club and score as much as possible for the club.”

Head of youth development Wim Jonk is pleased that Ajax contracted the forward. “He’s earned this contract. Adham is a real fighter. He draws the other players in the team out. He doesn’t need any batteries, he just keeps fighting for the team.
