Ajax have confirmed the signing of Juan-Familia Castillo on loan from Chelsea with an option to buy.

The 19-year-old came through the Ajax academy but left for Chelsea back in 2016. Castillo signed a new deal with the English club this summer until 2022 but had yet to make his first-team debut.

Ajax have loaned the winger, who can also play at left-back, for the season and have the option of making the move permanent.

Castillo told the Ajax website, “Ajax is familiar territory. I am an Amsterdammer and I have met many people here, my family lives here. It feels good to be back, I really missed everyone and I am really looking forward to it. “

The youngster will join up with Jong Ajax to start with.
