Ajax has reached an agreement with AZ and Nick Viergever for his transfer to Ajax. The defender has signed a contract which will be effective per July 1 2014 for four seasons, until June 30 2018. The transfer is conditional on the results of the medical examination and the finalization of a few formalities.
Viergever was born on August 3 1989 in Capelle aan den Ijssel. He went through the youth academy at Sparta Rotterdam and made his debut on May 10 2009 in the first team. The left-footed player has spent the last four seasons playing at AZ.
Director of football affairs Marc Overmars says that Ajax’s technical heart is pleased with this transfer: “Frank, Dennis, Wim and I have had our eye on Nick for a while. We wanted to have him and we’re happy that it worked out. Nick is at a good age and has played over 200 matches of professional football. He’s playable centrally on defense and also as a left back and at midfield. All in all, a reliable player who can be used in several positions at Ajax.”
