Ajax signs Damil Dankerlui (Amsterdam, August 24, 1996). The wing defender has played in Ajax’s youth academy since 2011. He signed a contract effective per July 1, 2015, for three seasons, until June 30, 2018.
This is the first contract for the player, who won the Dutch championships last weekend with the under 19s. Next season, Dankerlui will join the Ajax Reserves’ selection.
“I’m very proud of myself”, said the Ajacied shortly after signing his contract. “I want to thank everyone who has supported me. I’ve worked very hard for this and have invested a lot in myself. It’s great that I can sign with such a wonderful club. I’m also pleased with my development this year. Now I want to continue to train well, play matches and then focus on making it into the first team.”
