Barcelona midfielder Isaac Cuenca has joined Dutch side Ajax Amsterdam on a five-month loan deal in an attempt to regain fitness for next season.

Cuenca hasn't played a competitive match since suffering a knee injury last season

Cuenca, 21, has been sidelined since undergoing surgery on his right knee last May, but was given the all clear by Barca on Thursday to return to competitive action.

It is believed Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova contacted Cuenca and urged him to move to Ajax, with the Catalan giants looking to assess his match fitness at season's end.

Although the deal is yet to be confirmed by Barca, Ajax revealed the terms of the contract - which will see both clubs pay 50% of Cuenca's wages - in a statement on their website.

"Ajax has reached an agreement with Joan Isaac Cuenca Lopez," it read. "The lease agreement will take effect immediately and has a duration of five months, up to and including June 30, 2013. The right-hand midfielder is of FC Barcelona."
