Since Lobtoka changed sides from Trencin to Ajax he's made quite impression on trainings. Officially he's on loan and plays his matches with the second team Ajax 2 aka youthsquad, which participates in the devision bellow the 'eredivisie'.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanislav_Lobotka

He's slowly concurring the heart of Ajaxfans because he's so versatile, I would be surprised if Ajax doesn't contract him permanently after this season. He played very good yesterday in the match against PSV 2.

See in video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=meBLQHffP74 (Lobotka plays with 8 and scores a goal in the 54th minute)

The kid just scored another goal in the away game against former eredivisie squad VVV. Jong Ajax or Ajax 2 performs on the second level in Holland.

Lobotka will be on the bench for the game of the first team against some 4th division club in the Dutch Cup. He might also catch his first minutes in Ajax1 tonight if we are lucky

Jong Ajax or Ajax 2 has been struggeling so far in the Dutch second League. It's the first year Ajax 2 plays against senior teams and it's alot of adapting. Also because of players that also play for their national youth team there has been a continousisly changing squad. No less than 48 players made minutes in Ajax 2.

Going back to Lobotka he has been one of the best of this season so far as a defensive midfielder in Ajax 2. Assistent coach of Ajax1 Bergkamp had some nice words about his perfromances. Also his current coach at Ajax 2 praised his perfomances.

Stating: 'He's creative, can score a goal and has overview, it's a waiste just to play him out as a defensive midfielder. he can easey perform on the level of Ajax 2. he's an interesting player and I advised the board to keep him at Ajax. He's two years younger than Davy Klaassen (current revelation in Ajax 1) who had time to develop himself in Ajax 2. Lobtoka should also been given this opportunity to develop at Ajax'

He's in this 'special programm' the coaches made. Some other players had it aswell like current Ajax 1 striker Danny Hoesen. It's a personalized programma to do extra training on weak spots and physique. Because of that he probably isn't in the picture yet for the first team, he also didn't join the Ajax 1 one trainingcamp in Turkey this winter. I expect Lobotka to make his minutes either at the end of this season or next season.

Some small sparks from Lobotka and all in all a decent game for him in a 4-1 win against former eredivisieteam VVV

Ajax.nl did an interview with the kid in Dutch, you can run it into a translatot if you find it interesting enough Kajoo.; http://www.ajax.nl/Ajax-Nieuws/Ajax-nieuwsarchief/Ajax-nieuwsartikel/195118/Lobotka-Mijn-familie-zei-ga-ervoor.htm

He's basically saying that the language is still very hard and he has been a little homesick but on the other hand he feels more and more comfortable in Amsterdam and that he's resting alot so he can live and perform as a professional.

used google translator, happy to hear he overcame his adaptation struggles, it´s never easy for such a young kid.

Apparently Ajax still has some interest in the kid, but they couldn't agree on the price with Ling. Who knows it might change.
