Midfielder Frenkie de Jong played his last game for this season’s Eredivisie winners Ajax Amsterdam on Wednesday night in their 4-1 away win over De Graafschap.

The 22-year-old is on his way to the Catalan giants, having already signed for the club in January this year, and cannot wait to get closer to the team’s captain.

"I am going to miss the Eredivisie, I had a good time here. It is very unfortunate that I am leaving, we really have a unique team here for Dutch standards. We have experienced a lot and had a lot of fun together, I will miss that," he told Fox Sports.

"I’m not sorry, because I’m really looking forward to my new club. I am very curious how I will do it at Barcelona.

"I am particularly curious about Lionel Messi, which I am most looking forward to. How he is at the training, what I can learn from him. It would be great if I get a click with him. I just have to play a lot of balls at him.

"It would be great if I immediately get a click with the players at Barcelona. It is always nice if you do it right from the start. You are judged on that by your fellow players."
