Barcelona announced the signing of Jasper Cillessen shortly after midday on Thursday. The Dutch goalkeeper, who was part of the Ajax team which was knocked out of the Champions League by Rostov last night, took a direct flight to Barcelona straight after the game and arrived in the early hours of this morning. Cillessen was taken to the Ciutat Esportiva to undergo a medical before his transfer was confirmed by the club. The player actually beat Barça to it, by changing his profile on his personal Instagram and Twitter accounts.

According to the club's official statement issued shortly afterwards, Barça have paid Ajax a 13 million euro fee for Cillessen who joins on a five-year contract. His buy-out has been set at 60 million euros.

The 27-year-old will be presented between 11:00 hours and midday tomorrow at Camp Nou and will give his first press conference as a blaugrana in the Ricard Maxenchs press room at 12:30.
