Ajax has signed a contract with Leon Bergsma (Amsterdam, January 25, 1997). The Under 19s junior has been playing in Ajax’s youth academy since 2005. He has signed a contract that is effective per July 1, 2016, for two years, until June 30, 2018. This is the central defender’s first contract.
Bergsma: “It feels fantastic to sign my first contract after being in the youth academy for eleven years. Lately, I’ve been a steady contributor to the Under 19s. I’ve worked hard and this is a great reward. I’ll be starting with the Ajax Reserves next season and naturally, my dream is to play in the ArenA one day.”
