Darko Bodul Signs New Ajax Deal

The young striker has extended his current deal at the Amsterdam giants...
According to Algemeen Dagblad, Eredivisie outfit Ajax and talented attacker Darko Bodul have reached an agreement to extend the youngster's current Ajax deal with two more seasons.

The 20-year-old joined Ajax from Heerenveen last summer and had an expiring contract at the Amsterdam side. Bodul is regarded as one of the biggest attacking talents at Ajax.

The Sarajevo-born striker made his official Ajax debut in the league match against Vitesse earlier this campaign. However, Bodul was unable to prevent the Arnhem side from beating Ajax 4-1 and didn't score in the match.

Bodul has been capped at under-19 level several times for Croatia, but the promising striker also has an Austrian passport. His brother Dragan Bodul plays for Union Ardagger in Austria.

Meanhwile, Ajax have informed left back Donovan Slijngard that he's no longer needed at the Amsterdam side. The 21-year-old defender is currently on loan at Sparta.

Slijngard has an expiring contract at Ajax and will leave the club on a Bosman move this summer. It's not yet known whether Sparta are interested in making Slijngard's stay at the Rotterdam side a permanent one.
