- Ajax winger Mohammed Kudus signed 5-year contract with new club
West Ham have pulled off a shocking transfer deal by landing Ajax winger Mohammed Kudus on a five-year contract.
The price is supposedly a €45 million bundle, and the deal has a sell-for clause for the Netherlands side.
Kudus has expressed his happiness with the move, saying: I’ve been dreaming to play in a club and League like this since I was a youngster.
“I’ve been dreaming of this moment, and I’m so happy to be here. But it doesn’t stop here; I want to keep going.
“I try my best to entertain the fans, as I think that’s what football is all about. I’m just here to do my best and help the team.
“I’m really happy to be here. I will fight for the badge. I can’t wait to get started.”
Three clubs were earlier interested in this player
Chelsea, Arsenal, and Brighton were among a host of clubs chasing the Ghana international, 23, after reports emerged in April that he would not be extending his stay in Amsterdam.
But it is the Hammers who have won the race for his signature, adding some much-needed depth to Moyes’ forward line at the London Stadium.
Kudus scored 27 goals in 87 appearances for Ajax in all competitions, with his sparkling Champions League performances against the likes of Liverpool and Napoli last season earning him global acclaim.
