Ajax have confirmed the signing of 17-year-old Aussie starlet Sebastian Pasquali.
The Dutch giants tweeted the news overnight.
The ex-Melbourne Victory player was originally linked with Juventus but in October the A-League outfit announced he was headed for The Netherlands.
The Wangaratta-born central midfielder had yet to complete a full 90 minutes for Victory when the 33-time champions came calling.
Promoted to Victory's senior squad for the 2016-17 season, he announced himself as a future star against Italian powerhouse Juventus in his senior debut.
In a 25-minute cameo against the Serie A title-holders in the International Champions Cup in July, the teenager stole the show, stepping up to convert a penalty in the shoot-out win.
He was also a rare shining light as a substitute in the club's derby humiliation against Melbourne City on October 15, before coming off the bench to set-up Marco Rojas' last-gasp winner at Adelaide United the following week.
In all, the former Victory youth player made just two A-League appearances.
It is understood Pasquali remained in Australia to complete his Year 11 exams before linking up Ajax.
