Brazilian forward David Neres has signed a contract extension with Ajax, the Dutch champions have announced.

He’s agreed a 12-month extension to his contract which will keep him at the Eredivisie club until June 30, 2023.

The 22-year-old joined Ajax from Sao Paulo in January 2017 and was part of the side which reached the semi-finals of the Champions League last season.

Neres, who has been capped five times by Brazil, has scored 29 goals in 101 appearances for Ajax.

He’d been rumoured to follow in the footsteps of Mathijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong, who left this summer for Juventus and Barcelona respectively.

Reports over the weekend emerged linking him with Manchester United, and there were suggestions earlier in the summer that Arsenal and Liverpool were interested in his signature, but his new contract confirms that he’ll remain where he is for the upcoming season at least.
