Reliable journalist Alsdair Gold has now shared the latest news on Steven Bergwijn’s proposed move from Tottenham Hotspur to Dutch giants Ajax, with the journalist admitting he’s sad to see him go, writes the FTT.
The 24-year-old was at the centre of a confusing transfer saga in January. One moment he was seemingly set to leave N17; the next he was firing Antonio Conte’s team to a dramatic late win at Leicester City.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claimed that Tottenham had ‘decided to sell’ early on in the winter window amid interest from a number of clubs.
Two days later, the Evening Standard reported that Spurs had rejected an opening £15m bid from Ajax. It was claimed that Daniel Levy was looking to recoup as much of the £27m they paid for the player as they could.
In the end, The Athletic’s Charlie Eccleshare reported that the Dutch outfit were priced out of a deal for Bergwijn, leaving him at Hotspur Way for the remainder of the season.
In a QnA for football.london, Gold has now revealed the latest news on Bergwijn’s proposed move to Ajax.
“Steven Bergwijn wants to go and Ajax want him, but neither will get their wish unless they get closer to the £27m Spurs paid for him in 2020.
“I like Bergwijn and I must admit I’ll be sad to see him go but he needs regular starts, particularly ahead of the World Cup. It’s likely to be a matter of when rather than if he moves.”
