Tottenham signs Ivory Coast's Aurier

WINNING: Sege Furier

TOTTENHAM HAVE signed Paris St-Germain defender Serge Aurier for a fee in the region of £23m.

According to BBC Sport, the Ivory Coast right-back has signed a five-year contract until 2022.

The deal was held up by work permit complications as a result of Aurier receiving a suspended sentence for assaulting a police officer last year.

Speaking on the signing, Aurier said: "This is a fresh start for me. I am determined to prove myself as a professional both on and off the pitch.

The fans are the most important people at any club and I am looking forward to showing them and everyone at Spurs the real Serge Aurier."

Aurier is Spurs' fourth summer signing, following the arrivals of goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga and centre-backs Juan Foyth and Davinson Sanchez.

He is a direct replacement for Kyle Walker, who was sold to Manchester City in a deal worth up to £50m in July.
