Steven Bergwijn in London as Tottenham Near Deal With PSV Eindhoven

​PSV Eindhoven winger Steven Bergwijn is in London to continue negotiations with Tottenham Hotspur over a potential transfer.

Spurs saw a £25m rejected for the 22-year-old, who was left out of PSV's squad to face FC Twente on Sunday after speaking to club officials about his interest in sealing a switch to the English side.

To try and speed up the move, ​Sky Sports News note that the winger is in London to continue talks with ​Spurs, but the two clubs are still negotiating the details of a potential deal.

A source has told 90min that Bergwijn has asked PSV to let him join Spurs this month, and he seems incredibly eager to get the deal over the line. He is ready to undergo a medical, while transfer guru ​Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that he has already agreed personal terms, so he is simply waiting for approval from his club.

PSV are holding out for closer to £35m, but Spurs expect to be able to reach an agreement with a bid worth just over their initial £25m offer.

The Dutch side have since confirmed on their ​official website that Bergwijn has been excused from training as he has travelled to England with a view to an upcoming transfer, so all the wheels seem to be in motion with this one.

It was first rumoured that Bergwijn had travelled to England without the permission of his club after refusing to play for PSV again, but the winger took to ​Instagram to dismiss such claims.

"There is a whole lot written about me, which I have also read myself. I am really disappointed that it has come to this, there is no truth to it," he insisted.

"I never refused to play for PSV, and would never do that. I have been there since I was young. PSV is in my heart. I have never refused to play for PSV, as you can see the media spins everything.

"I have indeed called the trainer, Ernest [Faber], and said that talks are going on, and he gave me permission. We had a good chat, and he wished me luck, everything went respectfully and according to plan."
