Everton Has Completed The Signing Of Ajax Captain Davy Klaassen

Ajax captain Davy Klaassen has joined Everton, making it their second big-money signing in less than 24hours. The 24-year-old attacking midfielder underwent a medical at Finch Farm on Wednesday and has agreed a five-year contract, having been signed for a fee of £23.6m.

Klaassen is fresh from an outstanding 2016/17 season, having scored 16 times as Ajax reached the Europa League final and finished second in the Eredivisie and he has also established himself as a regular member of the Dutch national side - he now has 14 caps to his name and has scored four times. Having made his debut for Ajax as an 18-year-old in 2011, Klaassen went on to make 163 appearances in total, scoring 49 goals.
He told the Everton website “I've walked around the training ground and talked with a few people and it feels good. I spoke a few weeks ago with manager Ronald Koeman about Everton. I wanted to come here and check if this was the right club for me and, since I came here, I feel so happy. It's a great club. The moment that I spoke with the manager directly, I got a good feeling. He's an honest guy. We talked about the club, about the way he wants to play, and that gave me a positive feeling. I talked to him about the club and everything we want to achieve and he was really positive. It's difficult to leave Ajax but I think this is a good step for me now and I'm really looking forward to my time here. I'm an attacking midfielder player who likes to get in the box. I also like to be aggressive on the field and press all the time. I like to score and create goals and I like to win. I want us to get better and better as a team and we will see where we go, but I have a good feeling about it.”
