Ajax has confirmed the signing of Nordsjaelland’s versatile attacking midfielder Mohammed Kudus. The teenager has high hopes of success as he is raw talent.
Ajax has reached an agreement with Mohammed Kudus and FC Nordsjaelland about the transition from the Ghanaian to Amsterdam.
The multi-functional midfielder / attacker will sign a contract that will take effect immediately and has a term of 5 years, until June 30, 2025.
The 19-year-old joins Erik ten Hag’s fold from Danish outfit Nordsjaelland on a five-year deal reportedly worth €9 million.
He has been handed the No.20 jersey at the Eredivisie side. Mohammed Kudus completed a move to Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam on Thursday.
Mohammed was born in the city of Accra in Ghana and started his career in the Right to Dream academy where he impressed a number of scouts from European clubs before choosing FC Nordsjaelland in 2018.
Kudus was born on August 2, 2000 in Accra, Ghana.
I would have liked to have left FCN [FC Nordsjaelland], the club’s fans and my teammates with European football to look forward to next season, and it is a disappointment to me that it did not succeed, but I feel that after all, I got a footprint, and everyone in the club must know that you have left a big imprint on my heart that I will always have with me,” the attacker told his former club’s official website.
“It has been a long journey for me with both tailwinds and bumps on the road. I am grateful for it because it has brought me development, confidence and opportunities.
“Now a new place awaits me and Ajax Amsterdam is a very special club with a very special culture, which I look forward to embracing. I look forward to continuing my development at Ajax and continuing the pursuit of my dream.
