Danny Bakker extends his ADO contract until 2021

Danny Bakker will be an ADO Den Haag player for the next three seasons. The 22-year-old midfielder put his signature to a contract on Thursday, giving his commitment to the club until mid 2021.

Bakker is an exponent of the ADO Den Haag youth academy. He came over at the age of 12 from the amateurs of Laakkwartier. Five years later, Bakker was part of the main squad of ADO Den Haag for the first time. The midfielder made his debut on March 16, 2013 in a home game against Vitesse Arnhem. Bakker steadily rose to become a first team member. At the beginning of last season, however, he often sat on the bench. After the arrival of trainer Fons Groenendijk the Voorburger is again a starter in the midfield. Last season, Bakker joined the 100 Club of players who played more than one hundred official matches for ADO Den Haag.

Manager Football Affairs Jeffrey van As about Bakker’s contract extension: “The conversations were going on, but both parties always had the intention to come together.” Fortunately, just before the winter break, Danny has emerged in recent years as one of the most important players of the club: solid play, hard work and moreover, can be used in several positions, and also a real local boy from The Hague, someone who knows the ADO Den Haag way. A player who plays in green-and yellow in the coming years.”
