Tottenham have completed the signing of England international 21-year-old Ryan Sesegon for a fee estimated to be worth £ 25m.
The teenager, who can play left wing or left back, made the move across London from Fulham, where he came through the youth ranks before making his 16-year-old debut.
All season was the main goal for Spurs all summer, and the deal was finally completed after he went to the doctor on Thursday.
The fee for the 19-year-old could rise to £ 30m with allowances, while midfielder Josh Onomach heads to Fulham as part of the deal.
Sesegon signed a contract by June 2025, and will wear the No. 19 jersey.
Spurs' move to Sesegon began with interest last summer, before the teenager decided to have a first-season season with Fulham.
Their relegation to the Sky Bet Championship allowed the north London club to break through and a cash player deal was agreed.
The 19-year-old is currently worrying about a hamstring injury, but that is not expected to be a problem and he will be considered a long-time successor to current left-back Danny Rose's club who could still leave before the end of the European window. September 2.
Rose was thought to be the subject of interest from Watford, but the deal was not agreed and Rose will remain at Spurs for the time being.
