Ajax has reached an agreement with youth player Abdallah Aberkane. In Amsterdam, the central defender has signed a contract which will be effective from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2019, a total of three seasons.
Aberkane was born on May 5, 2000, in Gouda. The youth international comes from ADO Den Haag. Previously, he has played for CVV Jodan Boys (2012-2013) and SV Gouda (2007-2012).
“This is day is indescribable, it’s amazing. I’m so happy that I’m going to play with this great club”, said a proud Aberkane, who will start next season with the U17s. “Ajax is the best youth academy in Europe. I chose Ajax for the development.”
For anyone who doesn’t know Aberkane, the Gouda-born talent gives a short description of himself: “I’m a multifunctional defender. I can play centrally and as a back. But my preference is to play in the right central back position. I like going up. My plan for next season: to show that I can add value to Ajax.”
