Having left Amsterdam for Tyneside in 2014, the 28-year-old forward has returned to the Eredivisie club on a three-year contract

Ajax have re-signed striker Siem de Jong from Premier League side Newcastle United on a three-year contract.

De Jong's move was completed on Monday, with the Dutch side reportedly paying £1.8million to bring back the player who represented them at first-team level between 2007 and 2014, having spent time in their youth system.

The 28-year-old originally joined Newcastle from Ajax for around £6m, but only started four league games over his time with the club, which was heavily interrupted by injuries.

Last season, he was on loan at his new club's Eredivisie rivals PSV, scoring six times in 19 league appearances, 10 of which were starts.
