Manchester United has announced that Daley Blind has completed his transfer for a fee of £14m.
Dutchman Blind joins on a four-year contract with the option to extend for a further year.
Blind, 24, came through the ranks of the Ajax youth system, making his senior debut in 2008 for his home-city club. He has won 19 full caps for the Netherlands and was voted Dutch player of year for the 2013/14 season.
Blind said: “It is a real honour to sign for Manchester United. I have been at Ajax since I was seven-years-old and I will always have very fond memories of the club and of my time there.
“Louis van Gaal is a tremendously talented coach, I have worked with him at Ajax and also for the Netherlands national team and I cannot wait to work with him at the biggest club in the world.”
Reds’ manager van Gaal added: “I am delighted Daley has signed for the club. He is a very intelligent and versatile footballer who can play in many positions.
“Daley is a great reader of the game, has played under my philosophy over a number of years and he will be a great addition to the team.”
