Ethan Butera (17) makes the permanent move from RSC Anderlecht to AFC Ajax.
Ethan is a young defender who arrived at our Academy in Neerpede in 2015. He signed his first professional contract in 2021. Last season, he made his debut at the professional level with our RSCA Futures in the Challenger Pro League. He ended up playing 14 games for our RSCA Futures. Ethan is also a Belgian youth international.
Last December, Ethan got the opportunity to join the first team on winter camp for the first time. Unfortunately, he suffered a serious knee injury that ruled him out for the rest of the season.
This summer, the club offered Ethan a renewed contract. The defender has informed the club that he did not wish to extend his contract, which was due to expire in June 2024. Therefore, RSCA reached an agreement with Ajax on a permanent transfer.
Good luck at Ajax, Ethan.
