The Netherlands international joined the club from Ajax for an initial fee of €13 million and will compete with Marc-Andre ter Stegen for a first-team place following Claudio Bravo's transfer to Manchester City.

Barcelona have confirmed that right-back Douglas has joined fellow La Liga side Sporting Gijon on a season-long loan.
Barca said Sporting, who avoided relegation on the final day of the last campaign, are obliged to play Douglas regularly while he is at El Molinon, although the specific details were not revealed.
A statement issued by the Catalan club on Friday read: "Sporting have made a contractual agreement that the player will be actively involved in the team during his loan year."
