Manchester United have sold Daley Blind back to Ajax in an £18.1 million deal.

The midfielder struggled to secure a regular role under Jose Mourinho last season and made just 17 appearances in all competitions.

And now United have reached an agreement with Ajax for Blind to return to the Eredivisie.

Blind was signed by Louis van Gaal from Ajax for £13.8 million in the summer of 2014.

But United have sold the Netherlands international back to Ajax for an initial €16 million (£14.1m), which will rise to €20.5m (£18.1m) after bonuses.
