According to Voetbal International, Lille will sign Ajax defender Sven Botman for €7 million.

The 20-year-old impressed on loan with Heerenveen last season and signed a new long-term deal with Ajax earlier this summer.

However, Botman will now depart Amsterdam for France with Lille agreeing a €7 million fee with Ajax, who will also receive additional bonuses. Botman will sign a five-year deal.

The centre-back failed to make a single appearance for Ajax’s first-team and doubted his chances of first-team action in Amsterdam next season. He will now move to Lille, who will play in the Europa League next season.
