Manchester United have reached agreement with Ajax for the transfer of Netherlands international Daley Blind.
The Old Trafford club are believed to have agreed a fee of £13.8m for Blind, who has notched up 120 appearances and won four Eredevisie titles with Ajax.
A club statement said: “Manchester United is delighted to announce it has reached agreement with Ajax to sign Daley Blind, subject to a medical and personal term.”
The 24-year-old versatile defender was part of coach Louis van Gaal’s squad at the 2014 Fifa World Cup.
United have been linked with Blind throughout the summer but the Dutch champions have been reluctant on selling him unless the Premier League club met their valuation, reportedly in the region of £14m.
Van Gaal is keen to strengthen his defensive options after a torrid start to the season, having recorded just a point from their opening two league games followed by Tuesday’s humiliating loss in the League Cup at Milton Keynes Dons.
Blind was on target in the 3-0 World Cup third-place match victory over hosts Brazil about two months ago.
