Ajax have signed 27-year old Dutch winger Quincy Promes on a 5-year deal for a transfer fee of €15.7 million. Promes previously played at Ajax’s youth team from 2002-2008.
Quincy Promes joined Sevilla following a successful 4-year spell at Lokomotiv Moscow on a transfer fee of €20 million. However, his stint at Spain was not a memorable one as Promes who generally plays as a striker was deployed as a winger. He eventually netted just 5 goals and provided 10 assists in 56 appearances across all competitions.
Promes will be Ajax’s 6th signing of the summer transfer window. Erik ten Hag is eager to bolster Ajax’s squad after a terrific 2018/19 season has already seen Frenkie de jong leave for Barca and Matthijs de Ligt on the brink of a move to most likely Juventus.
Promes’ addition will certainly boost Ajax’s attack which already has the likes of Dusan Tadic, David Neres and the experienced Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
Promes has so far made 260 apearances, scoring 97 goals and providing 62 assists. He has also made 38 appearances for the Netherlands national team, scoring 7 goals and providing 5 assists. His most recent goal came in Netherlands’ 3-1 win over England in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals.
Quincy Promes will reunite with Erik ten Hag who coached him during his loan spell at Go Ahead Eagles.
