Mohammed Kudus’ transfer to Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam on Thursday was greeted with excitement.
After scoring 11 goals in 25 league appearances for Nordsjaelland inside the Danish Super Liga, the 19-year-old, who netted on his global debut last November, has taken a step-up by joining the Eredivisie fold.
He penned a five-year deal reportedly worth €nine million, and follows the likes of Anthony Obodai and Yakubu Abubakari to play for Ajax.
Many Ghanaians, which includes Kudus’ worldwide teammates Jonathan Mensah and Mubarak Wakaso and Ghana train CK Akonnor, took to social media to share their relish after Ajax announced their modern acquisition.
Below are some of the reactions:

I love the overwhelming acceptance and glee that Kudus transfer to Ajax has been met with, of course, from a Ghanaian perspective. Don't remember the last time we witnessed such a thing. Awesome.
The hard work begins now for him really. Hopefully he's got the talent to match it.

Sensible move by Kudus. The links to other clubs like Man United were exagratted of course but Ajax is a wonderful place for a young , talented player to develop.

Ajax signing Mohammed Kudus is a huge plus for Ghana, hopefully he’ll be a success like Partey in ATM. We need more Ghanaian players at top European clubs.

The 19-year-old becomes the most expensive teenager in the history of Ghana football. Ajax paid €9m to price him away from Danish side FC Nordsjaelland. pic.twitter.com/D8FDikRtyX
