The teen sensation was going through a bad period in his boyhood club as Ajax head of youth Said Ouaali said:
“We have mapped out a path for him and there have been discussions with him and his management.”
“It is extremely regrettable, obviously they have something else on their minds.
“We have made every effort to maintain a great talent in Daishawn, but at some point it ends.
“We wish him all the best with the rest of his career.”
The Amsterdam giants are disappointed on his departure but since he has already reached 16 in February, he is free to decide his future. With Chelsea`s youth team boasting of huge success in the domestic as well as European competitions in the recent years, it was imminent that the Blues are going to win the race in his signature.
