Quincy Promes has been jailed for 18 months for stabbing his cousin at a family party.
The former Champions League forward and Netherlands international was charged with aggravated assault following an altercation that occurred during the summer of 2020.
NOS report that Promes has been sentenced to one-and-a-half years in prison, after his cousin was stabbed in the leg, reportedly over a stolen necklace.
Promes was not present at court in Amsterdam having lived in Russia since signing for Spartak Moscow from Ajax back in 2021.

Promes has been made to pay £6000 in damages to his cousin following the assault, with the Public Prosecution Service using eyewitness evidence and text messages on Promes' phone.
The court manager said: "Promes shows no insight into his behaviour. That is extremely worrying and serious."
Promes, 31, came through the youth academy at FC Twente before a first spell with Spartak Moscow that lasted for four years between 2014 and 2018.
A year at Sevilla came before two years with Ajax, in which he picked up the Johan Cruyff Shield.
His return to Russia has led to 37 goals across 74 games including 18 goals during the current campaign. The forward has also made 50 appearances for the national side, but none since 2021, scoring seven goals.
Often linked with a move to the Premier League, Promes has impressed in the Champions League with six goals from 15 outings with both Ajax and Spartak.
Promes is currently being prosecuted for his alleged involvement in drug trafficking after two shipments of cocaine were intercepted in 2020.
The 31-year-old has been accused of being involved in attempts to smuggle two batches of around 650 kilos and 712 kilos which were seized at Antwerp’s port in January 2020, according to the country’s Public Prosecution Service.
