Heerenveen have confirmed the signing of Ajax centre-back Sven Botman on a season-long loan deal.

After losing Kik Pierie to Ajax, Heerenveen were keen to add another defender to their squad.

Botman joins on a season-long loan deal and will compete with Daniel Høegh, Ibrahim Dresevic and Andreas Skovgaard for a starting spot in the centre of Johnny Jansen’s defence.

The 19-year-old made 28 appearances in the Keuken Kampioen Divisie for Jong Ajax last season. He recently extended his contract until 2022.
