Dutch international Huntelaar has scored 42 goals in 76 appearances for the national team and the 33-year-old striker made 136 appearances for Ajax between 2006-08, winning the domestic cup.

"It's no secret that Ajax is my club. So I'm extremely happy to come back here. My role is clear, but I'm not coming here to slow down," Huntelaar told Ajax's official website.

"I feel very fit and I'm already looking forward to starting preparations at the end of June. I've won trophies with Ajax, but not the championship. The goal at the end of the season is to hoist that trophy up with the team."

Huntelaar won the German Cup during his seven-year stint at Schalke and has also played for Serie A side AC Milan and La Liga team Real Madrid in his 15-year career.
