The 21-year-old striker joined Ajax from Deportivo Cali two-years-ago but has not yet been able to establish himself in the first-team. Last season, Cassierra was top scorer for Jong Ajax in the Eerste Divisie with 18 goals.

Ajax want the forward to gain more top flight experience and have loaned Cassierra to Groningen for next season.

Groningen director Ron Jans told the club’s website, ‘We owe this for a large part to our more than excellent relationship with Ajax at the moment.

“Like many other clubs, we see a lot of matches from Jong Ajax, where there is a lot of talent. The name of Cassierra has fallen several times with us last season, but we felt that he would not be feasible for us. When we were told by Marc Overmars that FC Groningen would be a good option, we started a conversation with the player.”
