Ajax have extended the contract of Rydell Poepon to 1 Julyi 2010. The previous contract ran until the summer of 2008. The striker will play on loan for Willem II next season; the same club where he gained valuable experience on the highest level this season.
Poepon joined Willem II from Young Ajax in the winter break, to get used to playing on the highest Dutch level. He is enjoying his time in Tlburg, but the forward hopes shine for Ajax in the future. That is why he is happy that he signed on for three more years. ,,It shows that Ajax have faith in me”, said the striker who is currently recovering from a hamstring injury. ,,This contract is a good step forward.”
He will play for Willem II next season. He is as yet unsure when he will play in the red and white of Ajax. ,,We will see how it goes next season. The main thing is getting as much playing time as possible with Willem II.”
