Ajax have reached agreement with Nicolae Mitea (24-03-1985) about a contract extension. His old contract, which ran to 30 June 2007, has been extended to 30 June 2009.
Mitea has been under contract with Ajax from August of 2003. The Romanian winger made his debut for Ajax 1 on 13 September 2003 in the home match against RKC Waalwijk (4-1). Before Mitea came to Ajax, the left-footed forward played for Dinamo Bucarest and Rapid Bucarest. Mitea has played 57 official matches for Ajax's first team and he has scored ten times so far.
Mitea suffered a severe knee injury in the Amsterdam Tournament match against Boca Juniors on 31 July. He is currently in the midst of his rehabilitation process. Martin van Geel, technical director of Ajax: ,,Despite his current injury, Ajax have faith in Mitea's possibilities as a specific left winger. Therefore, we have extended his contract in an early stage.''
