Ajax have confirmed that Brian Brobbey will not sign a new deal with the club and will leave on a free transfer this summer.

Ajax have been trying to convince the 19-year-old to sign a new deal for months but it has not been a success.

The club have announced on their website that the young forward will leave next summer on a free transfer.

Director of Football Affairs Marc Overmars said on the club’s website: “We think it is too bad and have done everything to keep him at Ajax longer. He has chosen to play football elsewhere after the summer. It’s difficult for me to accept, but it’s his decision. Brian is still under contract with us for a few months, if we need him the trainers will call on him.”

Brobbey has made six appearances for the Ajax first-team, scoring two goals. He has been prolific in the youth teams.

Mino Raiola is Brobbey’s agent and he will be busy between now and the summer with a number of clubs set to be linked with the striker.
