Ajax have agreed a deal with PSV Eindhoven for talented teenage midfielder Ismail Aissati.
The 19-year-old is widely regarded as one of the most promising talents in Dutch football and will now discuss personal terms with the Amsterdam-based club.
The youngster had made it clear that he was unhappy at the Philips Stadion following internal wrangling at the club and the sale of first-choice keeper Heurelho Gomes to Tottenham.
PSV were understood to be reluctant to do business with an Eredivisie rival, but have been forced to accept that Ajax's offer is too good to turn down.
"I have spoke with Danny Blind (football director) of Ajax several times, with our last meeting taking place on Friday," said PSV's director of transfers Adrie van Kraay.
"It took a while before we could reach an agreement. I don't want to say anything about the agreed transfer fee."
