The Colombian striker has failed to break into the Ajax first team since his €5.5 million transfer arrival from Deportivo Cali in 2016, but the Amsterdam club remains convinced he has a future in the capital and as such have not considered any other deal that involved an option to buy the Jong Ajax record goal scorer.

Cassierra spent the majority of last season with the title-winning Jong Ajax side, finishing as top scorer of the team with a tally of 18 goals, while also managing to make the odd appearance for the first team.

He remains under contract until 2021.
