Ajax has reached an agreement with SL Benfica to loan out Bruno Varela. The keeper will come over immediately from the Portuguese club, where he is still currently under contract. The loan out agreement is effective until June 30, 2019. An option to buy has been included in the deal. The loan out is contingent on a medical examination taking place this weekend.
Varela was born on November 4, 1994, in Lisbon, Portugal. He kept 35 official games last season in Benfica’s first team. Prior to that, the goalie was active for Vitória FC and Real Valladolid in Spain.
