Romano claims title-winning club just signed ‘brilliant’ player from Tottenham


Fabrizio Romano has claimed Tottenham Hotspur no longer have Steven Bergwijn on their books.

Spurs wanted to offload the Dutch international this summer amid interest from Ajax.

Antonio Conte rarely gave him playing time as he remained surplus to requirements last season.

Over the past 24 hours, speculation linking Bergwijn with a move away from Spurs has intensified considerably.

On Tuesday night, Romano said “let’s go” on the player’s transfer from Tottenham to Ajax.

He claimed Spurs and Ajax had agreed a price for Bergwijn and the deal was in its final stages.

And on Wednesday, Romano provided further updates.

Early in the morning, he claimed that Bergwijn was in Amsterdam to pass his medical examination and sign the contract.

And as of midday, only the club’s official statement remained confirming Bergwijn’s arrival, Romano added.

Although things didn’t really work out for Bergwijn at Tottenham, there is no doubt that he is a great player.

This decision is definitely the best thing for all parties and there is every chance he will thrive in the Netherlands.

Bergwijn, deemed “brilliant” by Danny Murphy, is fast, good on the ball and clinical in front of goal.

At the same time, Paratici was very successful in negotiating such a high fee for him.

Spurs paid around £27million for Bergwijn so they will get most of that back.
