Mohammed Kudus has joined Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam for €9 million, on a 5-year contract from FC Nordsjaelland.
The 19-year-old Ghanaian midfielder who is expected to be at the club until June 30, 2025 is not a direct replacement for Hakim Ziyech but expected to help with the team’s creativity.
Kudus started out with Right to Dream Academy, which he joined at the age of 12, in January 2018 together with two teammates, Ibrahim Sadiq and Gideon Mensah, all three at the age of 17.
Kudus got his official debut for FCN only 3 days after his 18th birthday, in a 0-2 defeat against Brøndby IF. He played from the first minute as an attacker, but was replaced in the half time. With his debut, he became the 9th youngest debutant in the history of FC Nordsjælland
Kudus is yet to get any invite to the Black Stars of Ghana.
