Cuenca: Frank de Boer played major role in Ajax decision

Ajax has confirmed the signing of Barcelona youngster Isaac Cuenca on loan for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old hadn't made a first-team appearance for the Catalans this season after picking up a long-term knee injury. He will spend the rest of the season at the Amsterdam ArenA as he looks to build up his fitness once more.

"Ajax have reached an agreement with Isaac Cuenca. The loan commences immediately and will run for five months, until June 30, 2012," a statement on their official website read. "The right winger is on loan from Barcelona."

Cuenca has made 16 Liga appearances for the Blaugrana, scoring two goals in the process. He has won Spain caps at Under-21 and U-23 level.
