Netherlands international Bergwijn has been keen on a move to Ajax for over a month after falling out of favour under Spurs boss Antonio Conte. The 24-year-old also played for Ajax at the youth level.
He scored eight goals in 83 appearances for Tottenham after arriving from PSV Eindhoven in January 2020.
Ajax head coach Alfred Schreuder said: “It is indicative of Steven’s ambition that he chose to make the step to Ajax. He is a player with many qualities. He has enormous drive and is also very goal-oriented.
“Of course, I am happy that we were able to sign him, he adds new quality to our team.”
