Leeds are set to complete a deal to sign Ajax youngster Pascal Struijk. The youngster arrived in England today ahead of his move to the club from the Dutch giants. The 18-year-old is another who will join up with the under 23’s in the coming months.

Struijk is a Holland under 17 international defender and arrives at Elland Road after joining Ajax from Ado Den Haag in Holland in the last few years. Leeds continue to bolster the under 23 squad but questions are being asked as to why the squad are performing so poor. We haven’t really got going and lost 3-1 away at Barnsely again today. Recent signing Aapo Halme, Ousama Siddiki from Real Madrid and Kun from Barcelona aren’t featuring, although Kun was away with Bulgaria for today’s game.

Fans are becoming increasingly frustrated that the first-team seems to be suffering with a lack of signings yet the uder 23’s are signing a player every other day with little or no success for that side. The nightmare badge situation has meant many fans lost focus on the transfer window and the eyes are now back on the recruitment. The signing of Pascal Struijk from the world-famous Ajax academy would be much more exciting if people felt enough was being done in the first-team but there is no doubt he will be looking to progress quicker at Leeds, getting a chance in the first-team.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
