Ajax sign Utrecht right-back Sean Klaiber to replace Dest

Ajax have moved quickly to replace Sergino Dest by signing Sean Klaiber from FC Utrecht.

Right-back Klaiber, 26, has penned a three-year deal with the option of a fourth year.

Utrecht will receive around €5m for Klaiber, who spent 13 years with the club and made over 150 appearances.

Klaiber was in the Ajax youth system in the 2005-06 season, but was considered too light and left the club.

At Utrecht, he forged a good reputation with the fans and often spoke negatively about his new club Ajax.

Ajax coach Erik ten Hag played a big role in the signing as he is friendly with Klaiber from his time in charge at Utrecht.

Klaiber fills a vacancy left by Dest, whose €21m-plus move to Barcelona was made official today.

Ajax may not be done in the market with talks ongoing to re-sign Davy Klaassen from Werder Bremen for €12m.
