Steven Bergwijn “turns down £35m transfer bids from Man Utd and Everton to seal Ajax move from Tottenham”

TOTTENHAM winger Steven Bergwijn has rejected offers from two Premier League clubs to secure a dream move to Ajax, according to reports.

Spurs have been negotiating a sale with Ajax for weeks, but the two clubs finally reached an agreement on Monday.

Bergwijn is now set to join the Eredivisie giants in a £26m transfer, with personal terms already agreed.

However, Tottenham could receive at least £9 million more if they decide to join a rival club.

According to the Dutch portal De Telegraaf, Manchester United and Everton were willing to pay up to 35 million pounds for the Dutch star.

The Red Devils hoped to make him the first signing of the Erik ten Hag era, while the Toffees saw him as an ideal replacement for Richarlison, who recently joined Spurs in a sensational £60m move.

But Bergwijn only focused on Ajax.

The winger has been desperate to leave Tottenham since the start of the year.

Speaking to AD last month, he said: “I just need to go play. I want to leave Spurs now, that’s for sure.

“Is it important that my new club plays in the Champions League? That’s not my main priority. It would be nice, but the important thing is that I play.

“I wasn’t allowed to leave Spurs in the winter and then I didn’t have any problems. But they didn’t watch me there for the last few months.

“I want to go play somewhere every week. It would be nice if it was clear soon. My situation has to be different now.”

Bergwijn is set to sign a five-year contract with Ajax.
