Official: Vermeer leaves Ajax for Feyenoord

The shot-stopper was no longer needed at the Amsterdam ArenA and will now be looking to relaunch his career with Feyenoord.

Feyenoord has announced the signing of Netherlands international Kenneth Vermeer from Ajax for a transfer fee believed to be in the region of 750,000 euros.

The Eredivisie side previously secured the services of Warner Hahn for the position between the sticks, while last year's No.1 Erwin Mulder is still under contract at Feyenoord as well.

The club was keen to add another shot stopper to the squad and have now found their man in the 28-year-old Vermeer, who has signed a four-year deal with Feyenoord.

"A number of clubs showed an interest in signing me, but Feyenoord was the most interesting option for me," the goalkeeper commented on his transfer.

"Feyenoord are a big club with a loyal fanbase. And Feyenoord are very ambitious. I cannot wait to get started."

Vermeer came through the ranks of the Ajax youth academy and has made over 100 Eredivisie appearances for the reigning Dutch champion.

He had lost his starting berth at Ajax to Jasper Cillessen last season.
