Ziyech’s buyout clause removed

Hakim Ziyech has had the buyout clause removed when he signed a new contract with Ajax this summer, according to AS.

Having played huge role in his team’s brilliant run to the Champions League semifinal last season, Ziyech was considered as a potential transfer target by a number of top clubs, with the buyout clause in his contract reportedly as low as €30 million.

However, the winger eventually opted to sign a new deal at the Johan Cruijff Arena, one that’s now set to keep him in Amsterdam until the summer of 2022, and more importantly, not containing a clause which sets the price at which the Dutch champions would be forced to sell him if he wanted to leave. This move is highly likely to increase the amount that would be needed for him to be prized away from Ajax, which may act as a deterrent to potential suitors.

Most recently, he was linked with Real Madrid, who are already planning for their near-future signings.
