Manchester United hero Edwin van der Sar is set to join Ajax in an advisory role.
The Dutchman, who won four league titles and the Champions League during his time at Old Trafford, has remained in contact with Sir Alex Ferguson since his retirement.
He has also been speaking to Ajax since hanging up his gloves and came close to joining their board a year ago, but chose to delay the appointment.
Van der Sar also won four league titles and the Champions League during his nine years at Ajax and the 42-year-old is ready to move back to Holland.
Ajax want their former goalkeeping star to come on board as a director and he will be part of a formidable set-up in Amsterdam.
Currently managed by Frank De Boer, Ajax also have Arsenal legends Dennis Bergkamp as de Boer's assitant and Marc Overmars as director of football.
