The 21-year-old captained Jong Ajax to the Eerste Divisie title last season but was told by the club that he was available for a transfer.

Several Eredivisie clubs showed interest but it’s AZ Alkmaar that have won the race to sign the centre-back, who has penned a deal until 2022. The transfer fee is undisclosed.

Bergsma came through the Ajax academy but failed to make his first-team debut.
