Crystal Palace to announce arrival of Ajax defender Jairo Riedewald tomorrow (From This Is Local London)

Crystal Palace will announce the £7.9m signing of Ajax defender Jairo Riedewald tomorrow, according to reports.

Riedewald, 20, is set to fly out to meet up with his new team-mates in Hong Kong once the move is confirmed.

The young Dutch defender is reunited with Palace boss Frank de Boer, who he worked with at Ajax.

De Boer handed Riedewald his debut in senior football in 2013, and his form has attracted the likes of Everton and Tottenham.

And Riedewald could be joined by Porto defender Bruno Martins Indi, who is being chased by the Eagles and Stoke.
