Ajax has completed the signing of Florian Grillitsch on a one-year deal with the option of a further two years.

The Austrian was available on a free transfer having left Hoffenheim and did not have to be signed before Wednesday night’s deadline.

The 27-year-old midfielder has signed a one-year deal in Amsterdam but Ajax can extend that by a further two years.

Grillitsch made 151 appearances for Hoffenheim and worked for a time under Ajax boss Alfred Schreuder while at the club.

The arrival of Grillitsch does not mean that Edson Alvarez will leave as Ajax have blocked a transfer to Chelsea, despite the player refusing to train.
