Everton have completed the signing of Davy Klaassen from Ajax. He will cost Everton £23.5million and is their second signing of the day following the completion of a £30m deal for Jordan Pickford.
Ronald Koeman spoke of his delight of bringing in his fellow countryman Davy Klaassen from Ajax.
“He’s a player who is only 24 but has a lot of experience and is a leader on the pitch. He has already captained Ajax for two seasons and that shows you the type of person he is.
“He is hardworking, likes to press and, of course, will give us more creativity and goals.
“It is another major signing for Everton Football Club and I am really happy we have been able to complete the deal so early in the summer.”
Klaassen served as Ajax captain the past two seasons. He came up through their academy, making his debut in 2011, and went on to score 49 goals in 163 first-team appearances.
