Steven Bergwijn has angrily denied claims he refused to play for PSV Eindhoven on Sunday amid interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

On Sunday, Bergwijn reportedly travelled to London without permission of the club with Tottenham Hotspur in talks with PSV over the winger. The 22-year-old was not part of the club’s 1-1 draw with FC Twente.

Taking to his Instagram account, Bergwijn stated he spoke with PSV coach Ernest Faber and it was agreed he could miss the game.

He said, “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.

“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. I think it’s a shame that I am being brought out like a rat, a snake. Because that is not the case at all. I did everything neatly according to plan, how it should go.”

PSV and Tottenham are still in negotiations over a deal for the forward. A fee of €30 million is being mentioned.
