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. Viergever scored an important goal for Ajax against FC Schalke 04 in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League. After a 2-0 victory in the first leg in Amsterdam Viergever saw his team trailing with 3-0 in the away game in Gelsenkirchen before hitting the net in 110th minute of extra time, sending his club to the semi-finales on away goals for the first time in over twenty years.
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.
