A Record deal of £42m Made As Tottenham Complete Signing of Ajax Defender Savinson Sanchez.


According to BBC.com Sport, Tottenham just signed the 21-year-old Colombia centre-back who agreed a six-year deal subject to receipt of his work permit.

Spurs’ previous record was the £30m paid to Newcastle for France midfielder Moussa Sissoko in 2016.

According to theguardian.com, Sánchez joined Ajax in June last year on a five-year deal after leaving Atlético Nacional in his homeland.

He played in last season’s Europa League final defeat against Manchester United and was named Ajax’s player of the year in May. He will wear the No6 shirt for Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino has been keen to add to his squad this summer and the completion of Sánchez’s switch came on a busy day for the Tottenham manager.

Spurs also brought in the goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga from Southampton on Wednesday and extended the contract of the right-back Kyle Walker-Peters. Gazzaniga has signed a contract until 2022 and will provide back-up to Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm.

The 25-year-old, who started his career at Valencia before moving to England with Gillingham in 2011, said: “I feel amazing and am so happy to start training with the boys. This is an amazing club and the facilities are unbelievable.”
