Ajax has signed a contract with Justin Kluivert(Amsterdam, May 5, 1999). The Under 17s player has been with Ajax’s youth academy since 2007. He has signed a contract that is effective per July 1, 2016, for three years, until June 30, 2019. It is the forward’s first contract.
16 year-old Kluivert beamed from ear to ear after signing his contract. “I’ve been playing with Ajax for nine years. This means a lot to me. It’s a reward for everything that I have done so far.”
Kluivert has drawn attention this season for his beautiful goals with the U17s. “I’ve played a good season and scored some nice goals. I’ve also played with the Under 19s quite a bit. My goal is to be a squad player with the Under 19s next year. I want to be important for the team. After that, I hope to head for the first team quickly. I want to play in the ArenA.”
Later today, an interview with Justin and his father Patrick Kluivert will follow on Ajax TV.
