Tottenham Hotspur have been praised for their acquisition of exciting defender Djed Spence as a variety of reporters and club correspondents give their verdicts.
The Lowdown: Spurs confirm capture…
After what seemed like weeks upon weeks of negotiations with Middlesbrough, Spurs finally made a breakthrough in signing the 21-year-old, announcing the deal on Tuesday morning.
Who should Tottenham sign after Spence?
Other (tell us in the comments!)
The former Nottingham Forest star, who played a major role in their run to Premier League promotion, has now become the north Londoners’ sixth signing of the summer.
Indeed, Spence follows Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison and Clement Lenglet through the door with manager Antonio Conte given yet more backing ahead of his first full season in charge.
The Italian has seemingly landed his desired right-wing-back option to provide an injection of real dynamism in the forward areas and it’s safe to say many members of the press are impressed with this transfer.
The Latest: Journalists thrilled by Spence signing…
Taking to social media, journalists heaped praise on Tottenham for finally landing Spence.
“Lots of potential there. Djed Spence is a rocket on the right side. Antonio Conte will now have this diamond in the rough to polish at Tottenham. What a Spurs market. Look at this boy…” – Fernando Campos, ESPN Brazil.
“Five year contract for Djed Spence. Great deal for all parties. £12.5m with another £7.5m in potential future add-ons. He’s certainly got tons of potential and Conte will have plenty to work with to continue his development.” – Alasdair Gold, football.london.
The Verdict: Right to be impressed…
Not only is there real potential there, but Spence’s arrival also helps to balance Tottenham’s troubling homegrown quota – killing two birds with one stone both on and off the pitch.
