Davinson Sanchez: 'Tottenham Hotspur move is huge step forward'

Tottenham Hotspur completed their first major signing of the current transfer window, signing Colombian defender Davinson Sanchez from Dutch club Ajax Amsterdam on Wednesday.

A statement on the club's official website said: "We are delighted to announce that Davinson Sanchez has completed his move to the club subject to receipt of his work permit later this week".

The Colombian global posed with his new shirt after completing his medical and paperwork on Wednesday.

The fee is believed to be in the region of £42m, eclipsing the previous record of £30m which Spurs paid Newcastle for the midfielder Moussa Sissoko last summer.

Sanchez becomes the Premier League club's second summer signing after goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga joined from Southampton on Wednesday.

His displays at the heart of Ajax's defence caught the eye, especially in their run to the Europa League final where they lost against Manchester United.

Sanchez not only provides depth behind Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen, but can also form a back three with the two Belgians, giving Pochettino great options at the back if he does continue to go with three at the back.

Walker-Peters, meanwhile, has signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until 2020.

The fee for Clucas was not disclosed.

The 26-year-old midfielder has agreed a four-year deal at the Liberty Stadium.
