Spurs complete Hojbjerg deal with Walker-Peters joining Saints

Tottenham have completed the signing of  Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton on a five-year deal.

The 25-year old joined Spurs in a deal rumoured to be worth around £15m.

Højbjerg told the Tottenham website: “I’m very proud, very happy, I’m also very excited to be here – I just want to get going, meet everyone and play football.

“I like to bring energy, I like to bring wins – hopefully! From the first moment I got to speak to the people at the club, the coach, I think it was very clear to me that Spurs is a very big club but also a club with even more potential to reach the ultimate, and I wanted so much to be a part of that.

“The leaders and the players that we have, world class. And the coach also, world class.”

Spurs defender Kyle Walker-Peters who spent last season on loan at St Mary’s has signed a five-year contract with Southampton for around £12m.

Walker-Peters said: “I’m delighted to have signed here. The last few months on loan have been great for me and a lot of fun, too. I’ve really enjoyed my football, the atmosphere here and also the style of play.

The club definitely fits the way I like to play, and I hope that people were able to see that during the last month or so of the season.

“I feel like I’ve already developed in the time I’ve been here and that’s a big part of wanting to stay, too. Obviously it’s a club with a great reputation for improving young players and, personally, I’ve found it really valuable working under the manager, with his ideas on the game and what he expects from you as an individual.”
