The way he shields the ball when pressed is bloody brilliant. Spurs really have made a great signing. You can really go toe to toe with City now.
Pfft we’ll see how they come up against our static trio of Milner-Henderson-Wijnaldum.. and probably lose again.

PSG have a sell-on %age - this way the actual transfer fee next year is reduced by the loan fee, and PSG’s cut is reduced.

ITs an obligation to buy if we make the CL, a few has been agreed. If we don’t make CL there is no obligation but I would say if he has a good season he will sign.

By being good at his job. Its not an option to buy though, its an obligation if Spurs make the UCL
An excellent deal all the same. Clearly Levy is the shit when it comes to negotiation.

At least we have Ed though. Good times.

Is he a 67m pound player then? I mean values are irrelevant now to a degree but with everyone raving about the deal are we saying he's worth much more?

Daniel Levy is a complete sod. But he’s someone you want on your side of the table when it comes to negotiation.

I think it is a good price considering Betis were hoping for £80 million right until the last minute when they realised we were serious about signing Fernandes instead.

Not for me having watched the highlights but he's a good lively player. Will drive them up the pitch for sure.

Most importantly he was Pochs first choose midfielder. Followers of the Spanish league rate him. I think his main pros are his strength and ability on the ball. @giorno is a knowledgable guy.

I think that is the key attribute we needed - other than Sissoko we didnt have any midfielders who could drive from deep into attacking positions - now we have Lo Celso and Ndombele. I would expect us to be a very strong counter attacking side now and quick on our transitions from defense to attack.

LC contract buyout was at €88m

Loan Fee is €15m
Buy Fee next year is €40m with possible add ons of €5m

So in total €60m (£55m)

PSG loss out on the cost of the Loan Fee from there slice

I agree. You've signed two players who can dribble out from midfield at pace. Smart stuff from Poch and Levy as usual.

I hadn't even heard of him until he was mentioned on Redcafe.

We all love United
Spurs now have a very strong and robust midfield. We are going to struggle big time when we go up against them

Thanks for the replies. I think the important thing is it was who Poch wanted so he obviously has an idea of where he wants to go with things.

I asked about the fee as I only recall him at PSG and he didn't seem anything more than a decent player. I assume he's developed more since going to Spain hence the price tag.

I also assume the Caf going overboard on how good the deal is in part is to do with the annoyance at no deadline day activity at United!

Know very little about him, to be honest. Seen a bit here and there and knew he was at PSG but otherwise not much at all.

If he works hard and has the ability though, I have no doubt he'll be a success under Poch. Certainly we've surely had much less talented midfielders who have functioned well so can't see him being anything other than an upgrade.

New Tottenham midfielder Giovani Lo Celso: "It was an easy decision. It’s a club that plays in the Champions League every year, has an incredible stadium, a top-level training centre and a coaching team of Argentines that showed interest in me, and that was very important."

I will never doubt @GlastonSpur again!

He didn't mention the cheese shop, though.

And if you ever do, then … Ryan Sessegnon:

"On why he decided on a move to Tottenham... 'The intensity of the way Tottenham play, the energy you can see on the field, the style of play is fantastic. New stadium, Champions League football, for a young player it's all exciting to see that and you'd be silly not to join a club like this.'"
