Ajax has reached an agreement with Benjamin van Leer and Roda JC for the immediate transfer of the keeper to Amsterdam. Van Leer has signed a contract for four seasons, until June 30, 2021.
Van Leer was born on April 9, 1992, in Nieuwegein. Prior to arriving at Roda JC in 2014, he played in the youth academy at PSV, the club that loaned him out to FC Eindhoven for the 2012-2013 season. In total, he has played 85 official matches in Roda JC’s first team.
Van Leer: “I’m very happy, proud, and grateful that I will be playing for this club as of today. I definitely wanted to come to Ajax. It’s a club that you just want to play for. I wanted to play for Ajax instead of playing against Ajax.”
