The 20-year-old defender has become an established first-team member since being promoted from the Urban Warriors' youth set-up 18 months ago.

Mobara has featured 13 times in the league for Roger De Sa's side this season, but was reported to be unhappy with his contract situation at Ikamva.

The youngster's agent, Rob Moore, claimed last month that Mobara had yet to be offered improved terms by the Mother City outfit, whose CEO Ari Efstathiou has now moved to clarify the scenario.

Efstathiou told the club's official website: "We offered him a substantial increase on his current contract in May last year following a promising maiden season with Ajax.

"Unfortunately due to circumstances not in the club's control, he only accepted our offer in December."

Commenting on his new contract, which runs until 2018, Mobara said: "For me this feels like the beginning of my career. This is where I need to make the decision to become a better player and also be a better person off the field.

"I am only thinking about Europe from here and reaching a level that no one has reached before. Signing for Ajax is a big step to where I want to go with my career.

"This is the best platform to go to Europe and achieve what I hope to achieve in my career."
