Ajax have confirmed that the attacker has put pen-to-paper on a three and a half year deal that begins when the player turns 18 on the 12th of January.

Traoré, already a full international, joined Ajax Cape Town from Rahimo FC in his native country. He will join up with Ajax in Florida for their training camp this month alongside compatriot Hassane Bandé, who is returning from a lengthy break caused by a pre-season injury.

The moves follows on from a successful trial in Amsterdam back in March.
