Ajax have finally confirmed the signing of FC Emmen goalkeeper Kjell Scherpen.

The 19-year-old has been first choice stopper for Emmen this season and impressed Ajax with his performances.

A move to Amsterdam has been in the works for weeks and a four-year deal was finally confirmed on Wednesday afternoon.

Ajax director of football affairs, Marc Overmars, told the club’s website, “Kjell is a very big talent and it is great that he has chosen Ajax.

“We are very satisfied with Andre Onana’s recent contract extension, but we are of course also looking to the future. Kjell will be 1 of the 4 keepers in the A-selection and will, therefore, be on the training field with the first team on a daily basis.”
