Sevilla forward Quincy Promes joins Ajax

Sevilla have confirmed the sale of Dutch international forward Quincy Promes to Ajax in a deal thought to be worth €20m.

Earlier on Monday, El Correo de Andalucia cited a report in De Telegraaf which claims the player was set to pen a five-year contract in Amsterdam.

Promes only joined Los Rojiblancos last summer from Spartak Moscow in a €20m deal and he had four years remaining on his contract in Andalusia.

However, his performances have not quite lived up to the reputation – scoring three goals and providing nine assists in 49 appearances for the club.

The 27-year-old had starred for the Russian club before moving to Spain, having previously risen to prominence at FC Twente in the Netherlands.

Equally adept at playing as a winger or a forward, Promes – who is of Surinamese descent – has netted seven goals in 37 international caps for the Netherlands.

He is the latest attacking player to exit Sevilla after Luis Muriel joined Atalanta in a deal worth an initial €15m last week, as the club undergoes a summer revamp.
