Tottenham have officially confirmed that Atletico Madrid defender Toby Alderweireld has joined their ranks after completing negotiations.
The talented defender penned a five year deal with the spurs and will be the third defender to sign at White Hart Lane.
The Belgium international spent a year on loan with Southampton and they are threatening legal action, after being denied the option that give them rights to sign him permanently.
“I’m very proud to be a Tottenham player,” he told the club’s official website. “I’m happy to be here and hope to have a wonderful time with this team.
“From the beginning I knew a lot about the club from Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele and Nacer Chadli.
“It’s nice when you join and know a couple of players. I hope to get to know them a little better now!”
