Ajax and FC Groningen have reached agreement about the immediate transfer of Luis Suárez to Ajax. The forward from Uruguay signs a five-year contract in Amsterdam. Suárez still has to undergo a medical examination.
Twenty-year old Suárez played for FC Groningen last season. There, he scored 10 goals in 29 league matches. Before that he played for Nacional in Uruguay.
,,Also because of the long and historic relationship between FC Groningen and Ajax the clubs have been in continuous dialogue during the whole process, which has led to this positive result'', said Maarten Fontein, managing director of AFC Ajax, and Hans Nijland, managing director of FC Groningen.
