Ajax have confirmed the signing of Steven Bergwijn from Tottenham for £ 26.4m on a five-year deal.

Spurs and Ajax have finally agreed to change the 24-year-old player after Dutch players who offered £ 20m were rejected in June.

Bergwijn from the Netherlands has been keen to move to Ajax for the past month after losing interest in Spurs boss Antonio Conte. The 24-year-old also played for Ajax in his youth.
