Manchester United are set to sign Ajax wonderkid Dillon Hoogewerf after the Amsterdam club confirmed he has opted against signing professional terms.
The 16-year-old striker has attracted attention from some huge clubs in Europe this season after he netted ten goals and created six more for Ajax Under-17s.
Hoogewerf is considered one of Ajax’s most promising young players, but he has decided to part company with the Champions League semi-finalists at the tender age of just 16, and is expected to join Manchester United.
Speaking to Ajax TV, the club’s head of Youth Education, Said Ouaali, confirmed the youngster is leaving.
He said: “Dillon has indicated last week that he will leave the club.
“He is leaving for a foreign club. We wish him a lot of success and know that we have done everything to keep him.
“He may ultimately make the choice and choose a foreign adventure.”
