Ghanaian youngster, Mohammed Kudus, has officially joined Dutch side Ajax Amsterdam, the club has confirmed.
The 19-year-old attacking midfielder has inked a five-year deal with the former European Champions.
The club confirmed the attacking midfielder has signed a five-year contract until 30 June 2025 after passing a mandatory medical exam on Thursday, 16 July 2020, in Amsterdam.
Per a report, Ajax paid €9 million (euros) plus bonuses and add-ons. This means Kudus has become the most expensive teenager in the history of Ghana football.
The Ghanaian joined Nordsjælland in 2018 after graduating from the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana.
Kudus has been handed the number 20 shirt at Ajax and will be looking to fill the big boots left by Hakim Ziyech who joined Chelsea F.C.
The youngster has capped twice for Ghana. He netted during his Black Stars debut in the 2-0 win over South Africa in November 2019.
