DUTCH club Ajax Amsterdam have confirmed the signing of 19-year old sensation Mohammed Kudus. 

Kudus was previously at FC Nordsjaelland in Denmark where he found the net 11 times after starting 22 games. He joined the Danish club from feeder Ghanian club Right to Dream Academy in 2018.

The attacking-midfielder joins the Dutch titans on a five-year deal reportedly worth nine million euros and has been given the number 20 jersey.

“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. 

“I owe it to all my coaches and teammates in FC Nordsjælland and at Right to Dream,” said Kudus

Kudus has represented Ghana at U17, U20, and senior national teams’ scoring on debut against South Africa in a 2-0 win in a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier in November 2019.
