Ajax have reached an agreement with German club Werder Bremen to sign Davy Klaassen. The Dutch giants are interested in bringing back the 27-year-old midfielder and they have now reportedly agreed a transfer with Bremen. The Dutch international will be re-joining Ajax on a transfer worth around €15m.
Klaassen left Ajax as club’s captain in the summer of 2017 to sign a contract at Premier League club Everton, then trained by the current FC Barcelona head coach Ronald Koeman. He failed to live up to the expectations in the Premier League and after Koeman was replaced by Sam Allardyce half way the season, Klaassen was dropped to the reservers.
Six months later he completed a transfer to the Bundesliga, where he has established himself as a leading player and he has even been wearing the armband. After Ajax sold Donny van de Beek to Manchester United earlier this month, Ajax were looking for a replacement. Klaassen emerged as their number one target and the Dutch giants are now ready to complete a deal.
UPDATE: Ajax complete return of former captain Klaassen
Ajax have completed the return of their former captain Davy Klaassen from Werder Bremen. The 27-year-old has signed a four-year deal with the Dutch giants, following a €15m transfer from Werder Bremen. Ajax announced the transfer on their official website and social media accounts.
