Vitesse Arnhem have confirmed the signing of Ajax goalkeeper Daan Reiziger on a free transfer.

The 19-year-old’s contract with Ajax expires this summer and he has decided to depart for Arnhem, signing a three-year deal with Vitesse on Thursday.

Reiziger has been with Ajax since 2016 and has made nine appearances for Jong Ajax in the Keuken Kampioen Divisie this season. However, a first-team debut was never on the cards.

The Netherlands youth international will train with the Vitesse first-team but will play matches with the club’s U21’s.

Reiziger told the Vitesse website, “I am very happy with the opportunity that Vitesse offers me. After good years at Ajax, I see it as an enormous challenge to continue to grow as a goalkeeper at Vitesse. I continue to train at a high level every day and that makes this the right step. “

Vitesse also signed PSV Eindhoven youngster Simon van Duivenbooden on Thursday. The young striker had no future in Eindhoven so joins the Vitesse U21’s.
