Ajax has reached an agreement with FC Utrecht about the transfer fee of Sean Klaiber, it reports AD, De Telegraaf and WE Tuesday evening. The right back still has to figure it out with the team from Amsterdam.
According to reports, Ajax will transfer approximately 5 million euros for the 26-year-old Klaiber and that amount may increase slightly due to bonuses. The born Nieuwegeiner is still under contract in the Dom City until mid-2022.
Klaiber will succeed Sergiño Dest at Ajax, who is about to leave the Eredivisie leader for about 20 million euros for FC Barcelona. The American international already arrived in Catalonia on Tuesday-evening to complete his transfer.
For Klaiber, a switch to Ajax means a reunion with trainer Erik ten Hag, who had the wing defender under his wing when he was still coach of FC Utrecht. Zakaria Labyad previously left the Domstedelingen for the Amsterdammers.
At Ajax, Klaiber has to compete with Noussair Mazraoui. The Moroccan international was preferred to Dest in the right back position in the first matches of the season by Ten Hag.

Klaiber has been a permanent member of FC Utrecht for years
Klaiber made his debut in the main squad of FC Utrecht in early 2014 and played a total of 153 official matches for the Eredivisionist. In the second half of the 2014/2015 season, he was rented out to FC Dordrecht.
Klaiber has been a permanent member of FC Utrecht from the 2017/2018 season. He also participated this season for ninety minutes in the league games against VVV-Venlo (1-1) – in which he scored – and RKC Waalwijk (3-1 win).
Klaiber may not be the only player who manages to reach Ajax before the expiry of the transfer deadline on October 6. The team from Amsterdam would also have concrete interest in Davy Klaassen, who is currently under contract with Werder Bremen. He is still with the Bundesliga club until mid-2022.
Ajax has already strengthened itself in recent months with attacker Antony (São Paulo), goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg (Everton) and midfielder Mohammed Kudus (FC Nordsjaelland).
