Ghanaian youngster Brian Brobbey to leave Ajax

Published on: 13 January 2021


Ghanaian forward Brian Brobbey could exit Dutch giants, Ajax Armsterdam as both parties are locked in negotiation.

Brobbey, who has made three appearances for the Ajax senior team this season is coming into the final months of his deal and is currently free to talk to other clubs.

The Dutch giants could lose the teenage sensation as he drags his feet to extend his stay with the club.

The four-time Champions League holders in recent months extended the deals of some top talents in the team including Devyne Rensch, Sontje Hansen, and Ryan Gravenberch, but it’s only Brian Brobbey who has refused so far.

The arrival of Sebastien Haller in the ongoing transfer window has pushed the Dutch youth international further down the pecking order.

He will also has to compete with Lassina Traore and Klaas Jan Huntelaar in manager Eric Ten Hag’s upfront and this could force the player out of the team. 

But despite the signing of Haller, Ajax director Marc Overmars is adamant that they are doing all they can to keep hold of the Netherlands youth international.

“We certainly do not say goodbye to Brobbey” He told ESPN,

“I absolutely hope he will join in because he has everything he needs to succeed here. We know him, he’s been here for at least ten years. It’s a good match for the future. He’s only eighteen.”

However, according to Voetbal International Ajax has lost patience with Brobbey and is looking more likely that he will leave the club in the coming weeks if a solution can’t be found
