Tottenham sign Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton

Tottenham have completed the signing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton as their first signing of the summer.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg becomes Jose Mourinho’s first summer recruit ahead of the new 2020/21 Premier League season.

The player is reported to have penned down a 5-year contract set to tie him down till the summer of 2025 with the North London outfit.

The 25 year old Dane is viewed as the perfect man to add security to the middle of the park and strengthen the midfield.

He was brought in to protect the back line, following Tottenham Hotspur’s shambolic defending in recent times.

The 24-year-old Hojbjerg had just one year left on his current contract with Southampton, with the player losing faith in his manager after he was stripped off the captaincy for stating his desire to move to a bigger club.

Hojberg made a total of 134 appearances in all competitions for Southampton after signing from Bayern Munich in 2016, picking up an EFL Cup runners up medal in 2017. The £15m transfer fee paid for him by Tottenham is set to rise up to £23m with performance related bonuses.

In other news, Kyle Walker-Peters makes a move in the opposite direction to sign permanently for Southampton FC in a separate transfer, having been on loan at the end of last season.
