Promes misses training as reports claim Ajax star arrested for stabbing family member

Quincy Promes, Ajax, 2020-21

Ajax have stated that they are “gathering information” amid reports in the Netherlands that claim Quincy Promes has been arrested for stabbing a member of his own family in July, with the club adding that the forward did not show up for training.

The police have released a statement that confirms the arrest of a 28-year-old man, although it is still unconfirmed as to whether it is the formerSpartak Moscow and Sevilla player.

“We only heard about the incident a month ago. An investigation was then started and this morning led to an arrest,” police spokesman Jelmer Geerds told Telegraaf.

Promes is a 46-time capped Netherlands international who made his breakthrough at Twente, despite spending six years in the Ajax academy system.

In 2014, he made a surprise move to the Russian Premier League, where he turned out with distinction for Spartak Moscow. He hit double figures in goals during each of his four completed seasons in Russia, despite never playing more than 30 league matches.

During the 2017-18 campaign he managed a total of 21 goals in all competitions and performed to a sufficiently high standard to catch the eye of Primera Division outfit Sevilla, who signed him for a reported fee of €20 million (£18m/$24m).

He would never discover his top level in Spain and spent a frustrating campaign in Andalusia. He scored only three goals, his lowest career total, from 49 matches – more than he had ever amassed in a single campaign before.

In the summer of 2019, hiscareer completed its full circle as he returned to the Netherlands with Ajax. He mustered a creditable 16 goals from 28 outings in all competitions.
