An attacking midfielder, Familia-Castillo was regarded as one of Ajax’s biggest prospects, captaining them at U16 level, while making his U19 debut last season.

The Netherlands U16 international is the latest youngster to leave Ajax before their first team debut in the last few years, following the likes of Timothy-Fosu Mensah and Mink Peeters, who left for Manchester United and Real Madrid respectively.
