Castillion was supposed to sign a two and a half year deal with the Bulgarian side but during the club’s training camp in Cyprus he failed his medical which ended his hopes of moving to the club which already has Luis Pedro (formerly of Feyenoord) and Romario Kortzorg (formerly of FC Dordrecht) on their books.

Castillion made his Ajax debut in the 2010/11 but would not make any more appearances for Frank de Boer’s side. In 2011/12 and 2012/13 he spent some time away from the club at RKC Waalwijk and Heracles Almelo respectively. He played 59 games for those sides combines. scoring 9 goals.

At the beginning of this season Castillion joined up with Jong Ajax in the second tier of Dutch football. The young striker scored just once in six appearances for the side managed by Alfons Groenendijk.
