Writing on Twitter, journalist Charlie Eccleshare has relayed trusted information from one of his inside sources at Hotspur Way – with a dressing room leak dropping an encouraging claim about star signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
Hojbjerg, who put pen to paper on a move from Southampton in the summer, becoming Tottenham’s first signing of the window, has since gone on to impress Jose Mourinho and co. behind the scenes.
Will Hojbjerg become Spurs' signing of the season?
Yes, better deal than Bale
No, but great bargain
Hojbjerg shines behind the scenes
Having been a regular in Mourinho’s midfield so far this campaign, Spurs sources claim that he has thoroughly impressed behind the scenes after signing from the Saints in a £15 million deal.
Indeed, Hojbjerg has also stood out as a fan favourite so far for the Lilywhites, with supporters having waxed lyrical over his performances this season in midfield.
The 25-year-old has even attracted praise from Spurs goalkeeping hero Hugo Lloris, with his teammate saying that Hojbjerg is doing an ‘amazing job‘ for the team, right from the very beginning.
Transfer Tavern take
Valued at £25.2 million by Transfermarkt, it’s safe to say that the tough-tackling midfielder was a real coup at just £15m and he was arguably one of the bargains of the summer window.
This inside source hints at Mourinho’s love for the player who has become a ‘leader‘ behind the scenes, with this being a potentially great sign as Tottenham begin their quest for silverware.
