The Athletic have revealed that Daniel Levy has no intention of selling Steven Bergwijn this summer.

Spurs fans would have been hoping that Bergwijn would be able to kick on and make a real impression in his first full season at the club after showing glimpses of quality in the second half of last season.

Although the winger was getting regular minutes under his belt at the start of the campaign, he has found himself struggling for game time since the turn of the year.

The former PSV Eindhoven star, who Tottenham paid £27m for last January, has not featured since coming off the bench for a late cameo in the 2-0 win over Aston Villa before the international break.

The Netherlands international did not even make the matchday squad for Tottenham’s 2-2 draw against Everton last Friday.

The Athletic reveals that a number of clubs had launched enquiries for Bergwijn on the back of his struggles to get into the Tottenham team.

However, with Mourinho having departed, the report explains that Levy has batted away all the approaches for the winger and wishes to keep him at the club.

When Begwijn did get a run in the team at the start of the season, he had barely had any freedom to do damage in the final third as he was tasked with a lot of defensive duties. Hopefully, he will now be allowed to express himself and show what he can do.
