Steven Bergwijn sets out Tottenham ambitions

Steven Bergwijn has already laid down an ambitious target after joining Tottenham Hotspur.

The talented winger completed a £25m switch from PSV on Wednesday.

And the 22-year-old wants to win the Champions League this season with his new club.

"It's an amazing move, amazing club. Whatever I can bring I will give for the club and for this team. It's a dream for every footballer to play in the Premier League; the atmosphere, the stadiums are always full," Bergwijn said at his unveiling on Wednesday.

"I want to score goals, give assists and win the Champions League. Last season I loved to see that you beat Ajax.

"I was 13 when I went to PSV. You wake up at 6am, go to PSV, drive one hour to Eindhoven and then go back to school until three or four o'clock and that's every day.

"When I was at training my father slept in the car and that's for three or four years. I know what they've [Bergwijn's parents] done for me and without them I wouldn't be here. I'm happy I can give them this back.

"When I was a young boy I looked to the coach, like 'oh it's Mourinho', now I play for him. You have to believe in yourself and I know what I can bring for this club. I'm good with the ball, I can score. They play good football and that's what I like. To play here is a dream for me. It's an honour."
