Tottenham sign Middlesbrough defender Spence



Tottenham on Tuesday signed defender Djed Spence from Middlesbrough for 20 million pounds ($24 million).

Spence has signed a five-year contract at Tottenham after impressing on loan at Championship side Nottingham Forest last season.

The transfer fee for the 21-year-old right-back is initially expected to be £12.5 million, but could rise to £20 million if additional clauses are agreed.

Spence came to prominence when Forest won promotion to the Premier League via the Second Division play-offs last season.

He appeared in 46 games and scored three goals in a season that culminated in victory over Huddersfield in the playoff final at Wembley.

Tottenham coach Antonio Conte has embarked on a major search for new players after leading his team to Champions League qualification via a fourth-place finish in the Premier League.

After Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison and Clement Lenglet, Conte has now signed Spence.

London-born Spence came through Fulham’s academy before moving to Middlesbrough in 2018, where his time at the Riverside Stadium was interrupted by a series of coaching changes.

His temporary move to Forest jump-started his career. He was called up to the England Under-21 squad in March and now has a dream switch to Tottenham.
