ajaxkThe club have recorded profits to the tune of 23.9 million Euros. The figure is mainly down the sale of high profile stars that have now moved to the pastures new.

The Lancers sold Christian Eriksen to Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur, Derk Borrigter to Scottish club Glasgow Celtic and Toby Alderweireld to Spanish club Atletico Madrid.

The combined sale of the three players not only bought in 18.8 million Euros in transfer fees but also helped reduce the wage bill by another 4.5 million.

The increased profit in the first half of the financial year has now increased the club’s equity to 95.5 million Euros. In addition the net turnover of the club has also increased.

Despite selling their best players the Amsterdamers are still top of the Eredivisie table and in the last 32 of the UEFA Europa League.
