The transfer isn’t official yet but this summer Kik Pierie will depart Heerenveen for Ajax.

A five-year contract is waiting the young defender in Amsterdam after Ajax agreed a fee of around €5 million on Wednesday.

After Heerenveen’s 1-1 draw with Groningen on Sunday, Pierie spoke with Algemeen Dagblad about Ajax.

He said, “I haven’t officially signed yet. And as long as that hasn’t happened, I am not yet an Ajax player.

“Ajax is the club in the Netherlands that suits me best. If you look at their philosophy, at the type of football they play.

“If it all goes on, this is a challenge that I have to take on. And then I just have to show that I belong to the best eleven players. That’s how it goes at a top club. You don’t get guarantees on playing time. It’s up to me the task of showing what I can do. That I also belong at that level. “
