Dusan Tadic has signed a new contract with Ajax.

The Serbia international, 30, thrived after arriving from Southampton a year ago and was a key player as Ajax won a domestic double.

Tadic hit 28 Eredivisie goals and scored another nine in the Champions League as his side, who announced his new deal on Monday, reached the semi-finals.

Fellow forward David Neres has said he is not going to leave Ajax and Tadic has also committed his future to the club.

His contract now runs to 2023, but Ajax confirmed there is an agreement for Tadic to stay as a coach for a further three years.

Ajax has lost Frenkie de Jong to Barcelona and captain Matthijs de Ligt is expected to join Juventus.
