Ajax forward Siem de Jong has penned a new two-year deal with the club to keep him in Amsterdam until June 2015.
The 22-year-old's contract was due to expire at the end of the 2012/13 season but he has secured his future with the Eredivisie champions after helping them to the title last term.
He played a key role in that campaign, scoring 12 goals in 32 games for the Godenzonen.
De Jong, who arrived at the Amsterdam Arena from De Graafschap as a youth player in 2005, has set his sights on securing more silverware with the Dutch giants.
"My goal is to win the championship again and to contribute as much as possible to the team," he told Uefa's official website.
"I am happy to extend my contract because I really like it here. Ajax are good for my development."
The attacking midfielder has made 86 league appearances in four seasons at Ajax, scoring 25 goals.
The youngster also made his international debut for the Netherlands against Ukraine last August.
