Steven Bergwijn insists he did not refuse to play for PSV in order to force through his transfer to Tottenham.

Spurs are reportedly close to securing a deal for the 22-year-old winger after stepping up talks this week.

Bergwijn did not feature in PSV’s 1-1 draw against Twente, while reports claimed that the Netherlands international pulled out of the game as he wanted to travel to London to finalise his move.

But the midfielder claims he received permission from PSV’s interim coach Ernest Faber.

‘Good evening PSV fans, a lot was said about me, I’ve read all of it and I’m disappointed with how this went down,’ Bergwijn said on Instagram.

‘None of it is true, I never refused to play for PSV and I would never do so in the future.

‘I’m a boy from the club, PSV is in my heart

‘The media is twisting this whole story, I called the coach this morning and said some things are going on and he gave his permission.

‘He then wished me success, everything went fine and I did everything in a good manner without going behind PSV’s back. Thank you.’
