Ajax Amsterdam goalkeeper Andre Onana has put pen to paper on a contract extension with his Dutch Eredivisie club thereby ending rumours linking him with a move away from the club.

The Cameroonian international has signed a one-year contract extension at Ajax until 2022.

His previous Ajax contract had two years left on it.

Onana was linked with a return to Spanish champions as well as a move to the Premier League with North London giants Arsenal.

The 22-year-old started his football career at Barcelona before joining Ajax in 2015.

He has become a key player for Ajax Amsterdam since he broke into the first team in 2016.

Onana was part of the Ajax team that reached the 2017 Europa League final before they were beaten 2-0 by Premier League giants Manchester United.

He has been instrumental to his team’s run to the top two on the Dutch Eredivisie table.

Ajax Amsterdam are five points behind rivals PSV Eindhoven in the keenly contested race to win the league title.

Andre Onana was in superb form in the last round of the Champions League as he helped Ajax Amsterdam to the quarterfinals via a 5-3 aggregate win over defending champions Real Madrid.

Onana and Ajax beat their Spanish opponents 4-1 away from home in the second leg to overturn the last 16 tie in their favour.
