Nick Viergever (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈnɪk ˈfiːr.ˌɣeː.vər]; born 3 August 1989) is a Dutch footballer who plays for Ajax and the Netherlands national team as a defender.

Club career[edit]

Viergever made his debut in the Eredivisie with Sparta Rotterdam in a 1–1 draw with NEC on 10 May 2009, coming on as a substitute for Edwin van Bueren in the second half.

In the summer of 2010, Viergever moved to AZ. He was named as vice-captain behind Maarten Martens at the beginning of the 2012–13 season, after Niklas Moisander and Rasmus Elm had left the club. With Martens ruled out through a long-term injury, Viergever skippered AZ for the most of the season.

On 24 May 2014, it was announced that Viergever had signed a four-year contract with Ajax.[1]

International career[edit]

On 7 May 2012, Viergever was one of nine uncapped players named in the provisional list of 36 players for the Euro 2012 tournament by Netherlands manager Bert van Marwijk. He did not make the final cut. On 15 August 2012, Viergever made his debut under new manager Louis van Gaal in the 4–2 away loss to Belgium in a friendly match.
