The left-footed attacking player celebrated his 19th birthday earlier this month and is highly rated by those at De Toekomst (the Ajax youth academy).  Kishna joined the world-known set-up in 2010 from his hometown club ADO Den Haag where he had spent nine years.

Despite not having made his official debut for the first team yet, he did play in a friendly against Trabzonspor during the winter break, he has played for Jong Ajax in the Jupiler League on one occasion.

He started against FC Emmen on January 17th and was  taken off around the hour mark during a 4-0 defeat.

Kishna is highly thought of by the club and it seems only a matter of time before he joins the likes of Veltman, Riedewald et al, who have already made their first team debuts this season.

After he had signed his new deal, his squad number was also revealed. Kishna will begin his Ajax career wearing number 43.
