Eagles complete transfer of centre-back from Ajax for an undisclosed fee

Crystal Palace have announced the signing of defender Jairo Riedewald from Ajax for an undisclosed fee.

The centre-back has agreed to become Palace's second summer signing, after Ruben Loftus-Cheek's loan move from Chelsea, and joins on a five-year deal.

Riedewald, pictured top against Manchester United in last season's UEFA Europa League final, is manager Frank de Boer's first permanent signing at Sehurst Park.

"The Premier League is a great competition to be involved in and it is a great opportunity to be working under Frank de Boer once again having been with him at Ajax," Riedewald told

Palace start the new Premier League campaign at home to newly-promoted Huddersfield Town on Saturday, 12 August.
