Ajax signs Morocco striker El Hamdaoui from AZ
ROTTERDAM, Netherlands (Reuters) -- Morocco international Mounir El Hamdaoui has signed a four-year deal with Ajax Amsterdam, the Dutch league club said on Friday.
The striker, who spent the past three years at AZ Alkmaar, has moved for $6.5m, according to media reports.
Rotterdam-born El Hamdaoui was top scorer in the Dutch league in 2008/2009 with 23 goals.
He started his career at Excelsior Rotterdam before joining English premier league club Tottenham Hotspur in 2005. But he failed to start a game for Spurs and left for Willem II Tilburg.
El Hamdaoui's goals helped AZ win the Dutch title in 2009.
