Manchester United have signed Donny van de Beek from Ajax on a five-year deal.

Netherlands international becomes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first signing of the summer transfer window.

The midfielder moves to Old Trafford for a fee thought to be in the region of €39m - plus another €5m in add-ons.

It's been gathered that he has signed a contract until June 2025.

Van de Beek helped Ajax reach the 2018-19 Champions League semi-finals, scoring four goals along the way and 41 in all competitions over the last three seasons.

Donny van de Beek said: “I cannot begin to explain how incredible an opportunity it is to join a club with such an amazing history.

“I would like to thank everyone at Ajax. I grew up there and I will always have a special bond with the club."

The Netherlands international contributed 10 goals and 11 assists in 37 games last season in the  Eredivisie

He added: “I am now ready to take the next step in my career and perform at the highest level and there is no higher standard than Manchester United.

“Everyone has told me how amazing the Old Trafford atmosphere is and I am looking forward to experiencing that, once it is safe for the fans to return.

“This team has some of the best midfielders in the world and I know that I can learn from them and also bring my own strengths to the group.

“Having spoken to the manager about his vision for this team, the direction that the club is going in is hugely exciting and I cannot wait to be a part of that.”

Recall that he played a key role as Ajax reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2019 and also featured in the 2017 Europa League final against United.
