Ajax have completed the signing of defensive midfielder Demy De Zeeuw from AZ Alkmaar.
The two clubs have agreed an undisclosed fee and the deal is set to go through subject to a medical being passed.
The 26-year-old began his career with the Go Ahead Eagles before sealing a move to AZ in 2005.
He helped the club to the Eredivisie title last season but has now decided to take on a new challenge at the Amsterdam Arena.
De Zeeuw is also a full Dutch international, accumulating 20 caps for his country since making his debut in March 2007.
