It took them a little longer than expected, there was an issue with the player’s work permit, but once that problem got solved, Tottenham were glad to announce the signing of Serge Aurier from Paris Saint-Germain.
This is a huge and exciting opportunity at a massive football club and I am determined to prove myself as a professional both on and off the pitch
Aurier told Tottenham’s official website, right after his £23 million move from PSG.
This is a fresh start for me and I will do everything to make the Spurs fanbase, which is huge and diverse, proud of me. 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
the 24-year-old Ivory Coast international also said. The Spurs had been looking for a right-back ever since they sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City. At first, there were reports that they would rely on players they already have in their roster, but coach Mauricio Pochettino apparently felt the team needed an extra man for the position.
Aurier signed a five-year deal. He could make his debut next weekend, once the Premier League restarts, after the international break.
