Tottenham Hotspur forward Steven Bergwijn has told the Guardian that he couldn’t turn down a move to the north London club in the January transfer window in a recent interview.
The Dutch international signed for Spurs from PSV Eindhoven for £27 million just two days before the window closed last month (BBC Sport).
He has already made an immediate impact at Tottenham, scoring a brilliant goal against Manchester City on debut (Sky Sports) whilst also producing an excellent display against Aston Villa on Sunday when he played three key passes and had four shots (SofaScore).
Reflecting on his move to London, Bergwijn has admitted that everything happened extremely quickly but that there was no way he could pass the opportunity up.
Speaking to the Guardian, the 22-year-old said: “My father called me and said: ‘Pack your stuff, you’re going to London.’ It was fast. I didn’t expect to make the transfer in January. I thought in the summer. But if Tottenham wants you, you can’t say no.”
After reading Bergwijn’s comments it seems that loads of Spurs fans have fallen in love with the dangerous attacker, with many waxing lyrical about him on Twitter.
Here is what some had to say…
I love him so much
