Ajax have taken Bertrand Traore on a season-long loan from Chelsea with the 20-year-old also handed a new three-year contract.
The Burkina Faso international, who made his Premier League debut last December, scored four goals in 16 games in all-competitions for the west London outfit last season and has signed a new deal to keep him at Chelsea until 2019.
Traore will head to Amsterdam on loan for the 2016/17 season though, following Polish international striker Arek Milik - who completed his move to Napoli for £30m at the start of the month.
Traore will be reunited with coach Peter Bosz under whom he played at Vitesse Arnhem from 2013-15 on loan from Chelsea. He scored 16 goals in 14 Dutch league appearances at Vitesse.
The striker could be made available for Tuesday's Champions League play-off fixture against Russia's Rostov.
