Bergwijn takes Eriksen number as he completes £27M Spurs move

Steven Bergwijn will inherit Christian Eriksen's No23 shirt at Tottenham.

Spurs have completed the signing of Bergwijn from PSV Eindhoven in a deal worth £27m.

The 22-year-old has put pen to paper with Tottenham on a deal that runs until 2025 in a signing that will reinforce the attacking options at Jose Mourinho's disposal.

Bergwijn, who has nine caps for Holland, could face a baptism of fire on his Spurs debut, with Manchester City their opponents this weekend. The two sides meet in Sunday's late kick-off in the Premier League at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

He will wear the No 23 shirt at his new club.
