Brighton and Hove Albion have announced the signing of Holland International defender Joel Veltman from Ajax.

The 28-year-old won three Eredvisie medals in Amsterdam and was also named in the league’s team of the year on three separate occasions.

Having come through the Ajax academy, he now moves to the Premier League with Brighton after agreeing terms on a three-year contract.

Capped 22 times by his country, Veltman was part of the 2014 World Cup squad and also played in Ajax’s Europa League final defeat to Manchester United in 2017.

He becomes the second arrival at the AMEX Stadium this week after England international Adam Lallana joined the Seagulls following his departure from Liverpool.
