Klaas-Jan Huntelaar played for the Netherlands in Euro 2008
Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has agreed a £17m January transfer window move to Real Madrid.
The Ajax striker, 25, who will be the sixth Dutch player at the Bernabeu, will sign a contract until 2013.
A number of Premier League clubs including Arsenal and Manchester United were thought to be tracking Huntelaar.
The Netherlands international will be seen as a replacement for Ruud van Nistelrooy, who will be out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.
As Ajax have only played in the Uefa Cup, he would be eligible to appear for Real in the Champions League. He top scored in the Dutch First Division with 33 goals in 34 games last season but is currently out of action with an ankle injury.
Ajax coach Marco van Basten said: "I grant Klaas-Jan this transfer, though we preferred to finish this season with him."
