Galatasaray to sign Ricardo van Rhijn

Dutch daily newspaper De Telegraaf is reporting that Galatasaray are wrapping up deal for Ajax full-back Ricardo van Rhijn.

The Turkish giants have reportedly agreed to pay €2 million for the talented defender, while the Dutch side will be due another €1.5m if Galatasaray secure the league title.

Van Rhijn will sign a deal until June 2019 with the Super Lig side, thus ending his 14-year spell at Amsterdam Arena.

The 24-year-old came through the youth ranks at Ajax and nailed down a regular starting berth in the 2011/2012 season.

Following several more impressive years at the club, van Rhijn became one of the most sought-after players in the Netherlands, but ultimately failed to secure a big club move.

And despite the fact that he has since lost his place in the side, Galatasaray decided to make a move, and they appear to have secured a very good deal.
