Tottenham have confirmed the signing of full-back Djed Spence from Middlesbrough as Antonio Conte’s side continue their summer spending spree. Spence is Spurs’ sixth signing of the summer as they prepare for life back in the Champions League.
Spurs will reportedly pay an initial fee of £12.5 million ($14.8m) to bring Spence to north London, with a further £7.5m ($9m) potentially due in add-ons if certain clauses are met.
Spence has signed a five-year contract at Tottenham that will see him remain at White Hart Lane until at least the summer of 2027.
Spurs have confirmed the full-back’s arrival in an official statement, which reads: “We are delighted to announce the signing of Djed Spence from Middlesbrough.
“The right-back has signed a contract that will run until 2027.”
Spence spent the 2021-22 season on loan at Championship side Nottingham Forest, and played a crucial role in the club earning promotion back to the Premier League for the first time since 1999.
The 21-year-old made 50 appearances in all competitions for Steve Cooper’s side, and was particularly impressive against Arsenal and Leicester City during Forest’s run to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
