Dest became the first US international to join Barca, signing from Ajax on a long-term contract at the Camp Nou

New Barcelona signing Sergino Dest said he “followed his heart” by turning down a move to European champion Bayern Munich in favor of the Catalan side.

Dest became the first United States international to join Barca Thursday, signing from Ajax Amsterdam on a long-term contract at the Camp Nou.

Dest came through the youth ranks at Ajax, making 23 league appearances, and attracted interest from a number of clubs across Europe.

He admitted he turned down a move to Bayern.

His arrival means he will play under coach Ronald Koeman, who unsuccessfully attempted to convince the 19-year old to represent the Netherlands at international level while in his previous job.

Dest could make his debut in Sunday’s La Liga clash at home to Sevilla.
