Ajax and Sport Club Internacional, in Porto Alegro, Brazil, have reached an agreement to loan out Bruno Silva. The deal is valid for one calendar year, from January 1, 2010 until December 31, 2010. The defenseman is under contract with Ajax until June 20, 2012.
“Internacional is a top football club, which reached second place in the Brazilian league competition”, says Bruno Silva. “I want to go to the World Cup in South Africa with Uruguay, that’s my main goal. Of course, I don’t know if playing with Internacional will help me make it, but now I’ve done everything I can. I’ll miss the camaraderie from the Ajax locker room, and I’ll miss Luis. But I’ll definitely be following Ajax next year from Brazil.”
Silva, born on March 29, 1980, came to Ajax from FC Groningen during season 2007-2008’s winter break. He made his debut during the Vitesse-Ajax competition match on January 27, 2008 (2-2). The international from Uruguay has played 31 matches on Ajax’s first team.
