Ajax are set to offer Tottenham winger Steven Bergwijn the chance to restart his career.
Earlier this week he was one of the names culled from the original Dutch squad announced for next month’s Euros, with his lack of first-team minutes in the final months of the reason cited as an example.
He found himself below Gareth Bale in the pecking order both during the tail-end of Joe Mourinho’s time at the club, and Ryan Mason’s caretaker tenure.
The 23-year old started just 13 Premier League games last season, and managed just one goal in the home defeat to Aston Villa in the penultimate game of the campaign
Bergwijn was signed form PSV Eindhoven in January 2020 for a fee reported to be £26.7 million, signing a five year deal. Now he could be set for a swift return to the Eredivisie after a stay in England that has lasted barely 18 months in the end.
