Davy Klaassen extends contract

Ajax and Davy Klaassen have reached an agreement to extend his contract, which had been effective until June 30, 2016. The new and improved contract is retroactively effective as of January 1 2014 until June 30, 2018.

Davy Klaassen is proud of this extension and has confidence in the future. “This is a logical step for me. We’ve often talked about it in the selection. We want to build something with Ajax and I think we’re doing a good job”, said the midfielder. “I believe that many good things can happen in the future.”

Marc Overmars has faith in Davy Klaassen. “Davy is an intelligent player, a midfielder with depth and scoring capabilities, it says a lot that he’s almost our top scorer. He works hard for himself and for the team. I think he has the potential to become a player who can be outstanding in the future.”

Klaassen was born on February 21 1993 in Hilversum. The attacking midfielder has been playing in Ajax’s academy since 2004. He made his debut in the first team on November 22, 2011, in the Olympique Lyon – Ajax (0-0)UEFA Champions League match. To date, Klaassen has played 41 official matches in Ajax’s first team, scoring eleven goals.
