Steven Bergwijn has admitted that he does not see his future at Tottenham and hints a return to his native Netherlands could be a possibility.

Bergwijn has endured a difficult stint at Spurs since joining the club in a £27 million deal from PSV Eindhoven in 2020 (BBC Sport). 

The Dutch winger, 24, has struggled to force his way into Antonio Conte’s plans with Dejan Kulusevski and Lucas Moura often preferred ahead of him, while most of his minutes have come in the form of appearances from the substitutes’ bench (Transfermarkt). 

He was heavily linked with a move away from Tottenham in January after Ajax showed the most interest, although a £15 million bid was rejected after neither club could agree on a transfer fee (The Sun). 

And with the summer transfer window edging ever closer, Bergwijn further confirmed that a move to Ajax would be an option while admitting that he cannot see a place for himself at Spurs beyond the end of this season. 

He told Dutch publication AD when asked about his future: “Here? I honestly don’t think so. It’s difficult for me, I don’t play much. Ajax would certainly be an option. A return to the Netherlands would certainly be an option for me.”

Bergwijn has made 80 appearances for Tottenham across his two years at the club, notching eight goals and 10 assists (Transfermarkt). 

Spurs Web Opinion 

It is a shame that it hasn’t worked for Bergwijn at Spurs and it looks as though he could be leaving if an opportunity presents itself this summer. 

He has demonstrated some talented ability at times and he has got into good attacking areas when given the opportunity, but for whatever reason not much has clicked. 

Regardless of his time at the club, he still holds value which will work in Spurs’ favour if they do plan to offload him.
