Tottenham have completed the loan signing of Villarreal midfielder Arnaut Danjuma – just days after he was set to join Everton.
Sky Sports news He said on Monday that Danjuma will join managerless Everton on Tuesday. The move was still expected despite the sacking of Frank Lampard, who played a major role in the deal.
However, in a shocking twist, the Netherlands international suddenly flew to London for talks with Spurs, and the 25-year-old has now completed a move to Antonio Conte’s side.
Danjuma’s contract is an initial loan for the rest of the season but a buyout option could be discussed at the end of the campaign.
Danjuma can play in the Champions League. Spurs will face AC Milan in the last 16, the first leg of the doubleheader on February 14.
Danjuma decided to join Everton despite many offers and interest elsewhere. He is aware of the difficulties the club is facing in the Premier League amid turmoil but he wanted to test himself and take a risk.
However, the timing of Lampard’s sacking and the uncertainty of his replacement made Danjuma’s decision to leave Goodison Park easier.
The deal with Everton was supposed to be a straight loan until the end of the season with no option or purchase.
Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest were also interested in signing Danjuma Villarreal after they gave him permission to speak to clubs which sparked interest.
