Ajax has reached an agreement with Zakaria Labyad and FC Utrecht for the attacking midfielder’s transfer to Amsterdam. Labyad has signed a contract for 4 seasons, until June 30, 2022.
Labyad was born on March 9, 1993, in Utrecht. Prior to FC Utrecht, he played at PSV and Sporting Club de Portugal. The Portuguese club loaned him out to Vitesse during the winter break of the 2013-2014 season. Immediately after that, he was loaned out to Fulham FC in England for six months.
Huge step forward
Labyad is very happy with his transfer to Ajax. “My family and friends are very proud and they know how hard I’ve worked for this. The fact that I’m finally here is a huge step forward. You strive to reach the top in the Netherlands, and that’s where I am now.”
