Bergwijn to Ajax; Tottenham winger on the move to Dutch Champions

Dutch international hoping to re-establish himself at the Dutch champions.

Tottenham winger and Dutch international Steven Bergwijn has returned to the Netherlands, signing for Eridivise champions AFC Ajax for €30 million, as reported by reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.


The winger had a forgettable spell at the North London club, scoring only 8 goals in 83 appearances and only 4 premier league starts last season. He now signs with Ajax in order to boost his chances of making the World Cup squad.

The 24-year-old winger first started his career at PSV Eindhoven, joining and debuting for their youth setup in late 2014.

He signed a 5-year contract with then-Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho in the winter transfer window of 2020, for a fee reported to be around £26.7 million. His Spurs career began with a bang, as he came on as a substitute and scored the second goal in a memorable 2-0 victory over league champions Manchester City.

During the 2020/21 season, he quickly fell out of favour at the club due to poor performances and the sacking of Mourinho as Spurs manager near the end of the season.
