Tottenham forward Steven Bergwijn has admitted he may have to look elsewhere for more regular first-team football.

The Dutchman, who was the subject of interest from Ajax over the course of the January transfer window, has not started a Premier League game since mid-January following the arrival of Dejan Kulusevski.

With Lucas Moura also seemingly ahead of him in the pecking order and Spurs’ attack proving prolific under Antonio Conte, the forward’s chances of breaking into the starting XI look remote at best.

Only one of his four starts this season has come under Conte, with the former PSV star failing to capitalise on the famous brace he scored at Leicester during a dramatic win back in January.

Spurs snubbed a £15m offer from Ajax and Conte has previously hinted he would like to keep Bergwijn, although the player himself appeared to cast doubt on his Tottenham future when speaking to Dutch outlet Algemeen Dagblad.

“A place in the starting line up? Here? I honestly don’t think so,” he said.

“The attack works well, but I don’t get to play much.

“A return to the Netherlands would certainly be an option for me. The World Cup is coming. Mr. Van Gaal, the national coach, brought me into the selection last time, even though I didn’t play much.”

“Then you come back to the club and you barely play. It is a shame, of course. In the summer we really have to look for a solution”.
