Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of Jairo Riedewald from Ajax on a five year deal.

The Dutch 20-year-old played 93 times for Ajax, scoring three goals, and is capable of playing at centre-half, left-back or as a defensive midfielder.

Riedewald told the Official Palace website: "I am very pleased to be joining Crystal Palace and after speaking with the gaffer a couple of weeks ago I was delighted to have the opportunity to come over and play in the Premier League.

"The Premier League is a great competition to be involved in and it is a great opportunity to be working under Frank de Boer once again having been with him at Ajax.

"I look forward to meeting my new team mates and then getting the chance to be out on the training ground and getting ready for the new season."

Speaking about his latest signing, Palace boss Frank de Boer said: "Jairo Riedewald is a player I know well through my time at Ajax and I'm glad that he's now coming to join us at Crystal Palace.

"He will be an excellent addition to our squad, Jairo is a young player but already has a lot of experience. I know he is looking forward to playing in the Premier League."
