  • It brings to an end Steven Bergwijn’s two-and-a-half-year stay at Tottenham

  • Born in Amsterdam, his heart has always been set on a summer move to Ajax

Tottenham have sold Steven Bergwijn to Ajax in a £28million deal, with the Dutchman becoming the club’s first major departure of the summer. 

Bergwijn, 24, completed a medical in Amsterdam on Wednesday and will wear the number seven shirt for the reigning Eredivisie champions. 

Ajax offered to waive some of the fee owed by Tottenham on their Davinson Sanchez transfer as part of the negotiations.

The Colombian defender swapped the Johan Cruyff Arena for north London in a £42million deal in 2017. 

For Bergwijn, it brings to an end his two-and-a-half-year stay at Spurs following his move from PSV in January 2020. 

He scored on his debut in a victory against Manchester City, but never nailed down a regular starting spot at the club. 

The winger started only four Premier League matches last season – three of which came under former boss Nuno Espirito Santo in August – and all three of his league goals came as a substitute.

Antonio Conte has been recruiting in earnest this summer – splashing out £75million on Yves Bissouma and Richarlison as well as bringing in free agents Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster – so it was only a matter of time before players started heading for the exit. 

Bergwijn’s heart has always been set on a move to Ajax, having been born in Amsterdam before starting out in the club’s youth system.  

With the World Cup on the horizon, he is keenly aware that he needs regular game time in the next few months to stay in the mind of Holland boss Louis van Gaal.
