Ahmetcan Kaplan

Ahmetcan Kaplan, who transferred from Trabzonspor to Dutch team Ajax with a transfer of 9 and a half million Euros, made history as the second player transferred by the Dutch team from the Süper Lig on a testimonial.

The young talent, who opened the doors of Europe at the age of 19, became the third most expensive player in Trabzonspor history, and became the first Turkish player transfer made by Ajax from the Super League.

Trabzonspor, the last champion of the Super League, sent the young star Ahmetcan Kaplan, who grew up in his infrastructure, to the Dutch team Ajax with a transfer of 9 and a half million Euros and a 15 percent share from the subsequent sale. The left-footed defender, who opened the door of Europe, went down in the history of Trabzonspor and Super League with his transfer success and economic return.

Ahmetcan Kaplan, the second transfer to Ajax’s transfer from the Super League on a testimonial, has been on the radar of the Dutch team since April of last season.

After long negotiations, Trabzonspor and Ajax shook hands and completed the transfer of the young player. The young star, who signed his new club for 5 years and provided Trabzonspor with a 15 percent share from his next sale, showed the success of being the first Turkish player transferred by the Dutch giant from the Süper Lig. 

Trabzonspor’s third most expensive sale

The young talent is on the list of Trabzonspor’s most expensive sales to date, Yusuf Yazıcı, who transferred to Lille in 2019 with a 17 and a half million Euros testimonial, and Trabzonspor, who went to Leipzig with a termination fee of 20 million during the period he played on loan, and earned 10 million Euros for the burgundy blue people. He placed 3rd behind Alexander Sörloth. Gökdeniz Karadeniz, whose young talent went to Rubin Kazan for 8.7 million Euros in the list of the highest paid transfers of the burgundy blue club, Fatih Tekke, who was transferred to the Russian team Zenit for 7.5 million Euros, Burak Yılmaz who went to Galatasaray for 7 million Euros and 6.4 Juraj Kucka, who transferred to Parma with a million Euros, is next.

It was the most expensive transfer after Yusuf Yazıcı

The young talent went down in the history of the burgundy blue club as the second most successful transfer, after Yusuf Yazıcı as a local player, in the list of players brought to world football by training Black Sea Storm, which has a football player ore infrastructure.

Top of the Dutch League

Ahmetcan Kaplan topped the list of the most expensive transfers from the Super League to the Dutch league Eredivisie. After Ahmetcan, Matus Bero, who transferred to Vitesse for 1.64 million Euros, is in the 2nd place, and Şota Arveladze, who went to Ajax, is in the 3rd place with 1.6 million Euros.  

Ajax also made history

Ahmetcan, trained by Trabzonspor, ranked 17th among the players who paid the highest transfer fee in the history of Ajax, which brought young football players to the European stage by recruiting and training them. The left-footed player also went down in football history as the second defender to whom the red and white club paid the highest testimonial after Daley Blind with 16 million Euros.

Peaked in 4 years

Ahmetcan, who started his football career in Trabzonspor in 2018, was promoted to the 16-17 and 19 age teams within 2 years with his successful performance. Signing a professional contract with Trabzonspor in 2020, when he played for the under-19 team, the young star caught the attention of coach Abdullah Avcı and quickly rose to the A team. The young defender, who had a big break in his football career, which he started 4 years ago, was invited to the national team in the categories of 8 times 16 years old, 14 times 17 years old, 5 times 19 years old and 2 times 21 years old.

Market value climbed

The market value of Ahmetcan, who extended his contract with the club in 2021 until 2026, increased rapidly in this process. The market value, which was 50 thousand Euros in August 2020, when Ahmetcan was in the 19-year-old team, climbed to 2.80 million Euros in June in the 2021-22 season, when Trabzonspor won the championship.

Turning the crisis into an opportunity

Ahmetcan A, who could not find the chance to play in the Super League despite being in the squad in 9 games in the 2020-21 season, was able to play for 12 minutes in the Alanyaspor match played in the 7th week of the 2021-22 season, for the first time in the team. Ahmetcan, who turned the crisis in the defense line into an opportunity due to Denswil’s injury and Hugo and Hüseyin’s card penalties in the Kayserispor match played away in the 8th week of the league, played for 90 minutes in an official match for the first time in the A team.

Memorized with life savers

The player, born in 2003, who won the admiration of the fans in a short time with his performance, was engraved in the memories with the vital saves he made in front of the goal and on the goal line in the Fenerbahçe and Göztepe matches played in the second half. Ahmetcan, who played 13 times in the Super League and 5 times in the Ziraat Turkish Cup in the burgundy blue team, took a total of 1216 minutes in official matches in the 2021-22 season.

The player, who participated in Trabzonspor’s new season camp and did not risk in the league matches with the Copenhagen match, the UEFA Champions League play-off match, as the transfer negotiations continue, will continue his football career, which he started 4 years ago, in Ajax, one of the important clubs of Europe.
