Steven Bergwijn

Ducth stiker Steven Bergwijn has hinted at leaving Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.

The player has seen himself get cast aside by Antonio Conte in the past few weeks but was still called to the national team by Louis van Gaal despite his lack of game time.

There is a feeling however that the move by Van Gaal might change in the coming months if the player continues to be on the bench; a move that might see him miss the World Cup slated later this year for Qatar.

He proved once again how valuable he is for his country by scoring two goals against Denmark in the first friendly while netting once in the second fixture against Germany.

Speaking after the game against Germany as quoted by Algemeen Dagblad (h/t Evening Standard), he said: “I don’t get to play much at the club. I am happy that the national coach has called me up, that’s not an obvious (thing to do). Don’t forget about football. But of course, you feel that you don’t play that much. It was nice to be here again. We have a good and fun group.

“I wouldn’t know (whether form for the Netherlands can improve the situation at the club), we’ll see. Everyone wants to play of course. I have to keep my head up and work hard in training. Then we’ll see what happens in the summer.”

The player wanted to leave the club in January after Ajax asked for his services but Spurs refused to let him go with the North London club said to have rejected a bid of £15million from the Eredivisie side.
