Pelle Clement signed a three-year contract with Reading in the summer of 2017, making the move from Dutch side Ajax.
Clement is a graduate from the esteemed Ajax Academy, quickly establishing himself as a regular at Jong Ajax following his Eerste Divisie debut as an 18-year-old in 2015.
And in 2016-17, the midfielder make his full Ajax bow – scoring twice on debut after coming off the bench at half-time in a 6-1 win over Kozakken Boys in the KNVB Cup.
Clement went on to earn a league debut as a second half substitute in another comprehensive victory over NEC in an Eredivisie match that was played in front of nearly 50,000 at the Amsterdam ArenA a month later!
And he also made an appearance in Ajax’s Europa League campaign – replacing Amin Younes in a 2-0 victory over Panathinaikos. Ajax, of course, went on to contest the Final against Manchester United last season.
A Dutch youth international, Clement scored on his full Ajax debut just before Christmas, pulling a goal back in a 2-1 KNVB Cup defeat to SC Cambuur in mid-December.
He would represent Reading 29 times in his debut season in England, as well as continuing his involvement for the Dutch youth setup.
