Ajax have requested the return of Kian Fitz-Jim. Currently in fifth place in the Eredivisie, the Amsterdam team has reached an agreement with SBV Excelsior regarding the early return of Kian Fitz-Jim. The Kralingers first wanted to sign a player to replace the departed Kian Fitz-Jim, before releasing the midfielder to return to the Johan Cruijff ArenA.
Fitz-Jim will return to Ajax with immediate effect.
The midfielder joined Excelsior on loan for one season this summer. Ajax, the Rotterdam-based club and the player have agreed on a direct return to Amsterdam.

At the start of this season, Kian Fitz-Jim was loaned to SBV Excelsior for a season. The Amsterdam club included in the contract the option to request the midfielder’s return at any time.
The reason SBV Excelsior delayed Kian Fitz-Jim’s return was because the Kralingers first wanted to bring in a replacement. This week, the Rotterdam club announced the signing of Kenzo Goudmijn.
