Spurs sign Middlesbrough defender Spence

LONDON (AFP) – Tottenham signed Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence yesterday in a deal that could rise to a reported GBP20 million (USD24 million).

Spence agreed a five-year contract with Tottenham after impressing during a loan spell with Championship side Nottingham Forest last season.

The 21-year-old right-back’s initial price is believed to be GBP12.5 million but that could rise to GBP20 million if add-on clauses are reached.

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has been on a major recruitment drive since leading his team to Champions League qualification via a top four finish in the Premier League.

The addition of Spence follows Conte’s moves for Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison and Clement Lenglet.
