AJAX have confirmed they have received payment from Roma for the transfer of Cristian Chivu.

The Romanian defender's situation was the subject of mass coverage over the summer, as Roma failed to meet deadlines for the payment of his transfer.

After Ajax initially cancelled the move, a loan deal was ratified provided Roma gave financial guarantees to their Amsterdam counterparts.

Roma were supposed to issue a bank guarantee ahead of the opening of January's transfer window - but president Franco Sensi has removed any prospect of further hitches by paying the fee in full.

Ajax confirmed Sensi's comments and said the permanent transfer can be concluded when the transfer window opens in January.
