Carel Eiting has put pen to paper on a new five-year deal with Ajax. The 19-year-old midfielder, widely regarded as one of the most promising youngsters in the Amsterdam side (and #4 on our list of 19 biggest u20 talents), had one year left on his old deal.
Eiting joined the Ajax youth academy back in 2007 and made his first team debut in last year’s 1-6 KNVB Beker win over Kozakken Boys; his only official first team appearance thus far.
The youngster expressed his delight on his contract extension in an interview with AjaxTV: “I am extremely proud. Another special moment in my career, both for myself and the people that have supported me. But the real work starts now. I want to play as many minutes as possible in the first team this season.”
