The 21-year-old winger of Ghanaian parentage is looking forward to ending his winless drought against the Johan Cruyff Arena outfit when the Dutch top-flight resumes over the weekend 

Dutch-born Ghanaian winger Cody Gakpo has said his four games winless streak against Ajax in the Dutch Eredivisie must ''changed'' this Sunday.

Since being drafted into the mainstream ranks by PSV Eindhoven two seasons ago, the talented nimble footed winger is yet to record a victory against the Amsterdam-based club in the Dutch top-flight.

Ahead of the cliffhanger over the top of the table clash between Ajax and PSV this coming Sunday, the lanky flanksman is now determined to end his winless streak against the Lancers.

''That has to change this weekend. It is always annoying to lose to Ajax", Gakpo told ESPN. "Clapping it on this Sunday and with the points to Eindhoven. I'm really looking forward to it, everyone is ready."

PSV are to face other title contenders AZ Alkmaar and Feyenoord this month and the 19-year-old is upbeat about his side's chances against them this term.

''You can do good business this month, but you can't pass it after that. Grab as many prizes as possible with PSV.''

Gakpo shared light on his fine form following his goal scoring exploits this season.

''I have the feeling that I am developing well. I train a lot with Boudewijn Zenden and I also worked with Luc Nilis and Ruud van Nistelrooy in my youth. Furthermore, I have been calm for the goal from an early age."

He has so far made 12 league appearances, scoring 5 goals and providing 2 assists this term.

The Eindhoven-born winger has featured for the Netherlands U18, U19, U20 and U21 national teams but is still eligible to play for either Ghana or Togo at the international stage.

Gakpo was born to a Ghanaian father and Togolese mother in Eindhoven.
