Thulani Serero

Exiled Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Thulani Serero has signed a three-year deal to join Eredivisie rivals Vitesse Arnhem on a free transfer.

The 27-year-old was frozen out of the first-team picture at Ajax last season and it appears he will now have a chance to resurrect his career with Vitas in 2017/18.

According to De Telegraaf in the Netherlands, 'Cream' put pen to paper on the contract on Wednesday as he looks to rebuild his fortunes in Europe.

Soccer Laduma report that the player will undergo a medical with his new team before being unveiled on 1 July. The transfer represents a major opportunity to prove his worth on the big stage as Vitesse are involved in the Europa League after finishing fifth.

Under manager Henk Fraser, the ambitious outfit picked up their first silverware in the club's history last season, after winning the KNVB Cup with a 2-0 victory over AZ Almkaar.

The Dutch team are a youth development partner to English Premier League champions, Chelsea, who are said to regularly send players to them to gain first team experience.
