Aurier seals Tottenham move

Tottenham have finally agreed on a deal with Paris St Germain to sign defender Serge Aurier on a four-year contract. The full-back will join Spurs ahead of Man Utd, who had hoped to hijack a deal for Ivory Coast international.

Serge Aurier, considered one of the best defenders in Europe, will be brought in to Tottenham as a replacement for Kyle Walker, who made a transfer move to Man City earlier on in the transfer window.

The 24-year-old has also been given a work permit to play in England in the Premier League, a deal appeared to be under threat due to Aurier receiving a sentence for assaulting a police officer in Paris last year, but the deal will go through without a hitch on transfer deadline day.

The move to Tottenham follows the arrivals of Davinson Sanchez, Juan Forth and Paulo Gazzaniga. Tottenham will pay Paris St Germain a reported £23 million transfer fee with a further £6 million in installments over the next two years. 

Aurier said of his move to Tottenham: “This is a huge and exciting opportunity at a massive football club and I am determined to prove myself as a professional both on and off the pitch.

"This is a fresh start for me and I will do everything to make the Spurs fanbase, which is huge and diverse, proud of me. The fans are the most important people at any club and I am looking forward to showing them and everyone at Spurs the real Serge Aurier.”
