Siem de Jong will make his return to his boyhood club as Ajax announced that they have signed him to a three-year contract, according to a report from O Jogo.
The Amsterdam-based club reportedly spent £4 million to lure the 28-year-old forward back to his native Netherlands from Newcastle United.
De Jong played his youth football at Ajax for two years before notably breaking through into the senior squad in 2007.
He spent seven years at the Dutch club, amassing 244 total appearances and netting an amazing 78 goals during his time at Ajax.
In 2014, Newcastle paid £6 million to bring the Dutchman to St. James’ Park hoping he would bring his scoring touch to Tyne and Wear.
Unfortunately, a string of injuries kept de Jong from featuring much for the Magpies as he made only 26 appearances in two years with the club before they sent him out on loan to PSV in 2016-17.
Now back at his former club, the former Dutch international will hope the move back to Ajax will spark up a goal-scoring form once again.
