Dutch journalist Mike Verweij has revealed that the transfer fee which Ajax have agreed to pay to Tottenham for the sale of Steven Bergwijn is higher than what has been reported by various outlets.

Bergwijn now appears to be edging closer to sealing a return to the Eredivisie after publicly expressing his desire to leave Tottenham earlier this summer (Algemeen Dagblad).

De Telegraaf reported earlier this week that Tottenham and Ajax had agreed on a fee of €30m (£25.8m) for the winger. However, the report explained that Daniel Levy was not satisfied with the way the payments were structured over several instalments.

The differences between Ajax and Spurs now seem to have been ironed out, with Fabrizio Romano revealing earlier today that Bergwijn is in Amsterdam this moring ahead of undergoing a medical.

Romano also backed up De Telegraaf’s previous claim over the Eredivisie giants agreeing to a deal worth £25.8m for the former PSV Eindhoven man.

However, Verwiej has now taken to social media to state that Ajax will actually be paying €32.5m (£27.8m) for Bergwijn.

Tottenham have done well to get as big a fee as possible from Ajax. I suspect that they could have got an additional few million by selling the winger to a Premier League club but it seemed like Ajax was always the 24-year-old’s preferred destination this summer.
