ROTTERDAM (Reuters) -- Ajax Amsterdam have signed Denmark midfielder Lasse Schone on a three-year deal, the Dutch league leaders said on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old Schone, who joined Heerenveen aged 16 and later played for Graafschap Doetinchem and NEC Nijmegen, will transfer as a free agent as his contract in Nijmegen expires on June 30.

Schone has won eight caps for Denmark.
