On Thursday, Ajax confirmed that all four would be promoted permanently to the first-team. Erik ten Hag said on the Ajax website, “You have to earn opportunities and these players have done so in the past period. They show the potential to contribute to Ajax 1 and therefore they are transferred to the selection.”
