Barcelona allegedly seal the transfer of Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt, but the deal will not be announced until the end of the season.

Barcelona have allegedly won the race to sign Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt.

De Ligt has been heavily linked with a move to a top European club for the past two years, and a switch has been predicted to take place during the summer transfer window.

There has been interest from the Premier League and Serie A, but according to reports in Spain, a move to Camp Nou is already "in the bag".

A report claims that Barcelona have agreed to pay €80m (£69.23m) for the 19-year-old's signature, with De Ligt happy to pen a six-year contract.

De Ligt has played a key role in Ajax's run to the Champions League semi-finals, and the centre-back could potentially represent the Dutch side against Barcelona in the final.
