Vitesse Arnhem have completed the signing of Richard Knopper from Ajax.

The 26-year-old midfielder has signed a three-year deal following his release from the Amsterdam titans.

Vitesse coach Edward Sturing is looking to reshape his squad on a shoestring budget and he has boosted his options with the capture of Knopper.

Knopper is clearly relishing the challenge, as he said: "I have great expectations for the coming three years in Arnhem.

"The club has a fantastic stadium and superb fans."

Sturing believes Knopper will be a useful addition, as he told the club's website: "With his football qualities, experience and mental strength, he will be a fantastic signing.

"I am glad Vitesse has signed a player of this quality."
