Ajax snap up teenager Perr Schuurs from Fortuna Sittard


Ajax have snapped up teenager Perr Schuurs from Fortuna Sittard after reported interest from Liverpool.

The talented centre-back Schuurs has agreed a four-and-a-half-year contract at the Amsterdam Arena.

He will however be loaned back to second-tier side Fortuna for the remainder of the season when the deal goes through on January 1.

“It is a dream to be able to play at a top club like Ajax,” he said in a statement on Fortuna’s official website.

“There were several clubs interested and I also spoke with other clubs, but my feeling at Ajax was immediately very good. I think that’s important.”
