Vitesse Arnhem have confirmed the signing of Theo Janssen from Ajax on a three-year contract.
The midfielder has already played more than 200 league games for Vitesse and returns with the intention of seeing out his career with his home-town club.
The 31-year-old is believed to have a coaching role tied into his contract at the GelreDome.
The Holland international left Vitesse in 2008 to join Twente, winning the Eredivisie title two years later.
He then joined Ajax last summer and repeated that title success in his one season with the Amsterdam giants.
