Ajax secures one of Norway’s top talents: 16-year-old Skaarud signs for 3 years


Ajax has always had a special eye for young talents, not only Dutch ones. In keeping with this tradition, the Amsterdam club has announced that it has signed Daniel Skaarud: the very young Norwegian, still a minor, leaves Lillestrom and signs a contract until June 30, 2027.

Skaarud, 16 years old (born in 2007), has already played 6 games in the first team, scoring two goals and an assist. A devastating impact, which has not gone unnoticed by the Lancers’ scouts. For the moment, the youngster will join the Under-19 team but Francesco Farioli will follow him with great attention.
