Tottenham, in a tweet, announced the 25-year-old’s crossing with a caption HOJBERG IS HERE.

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg told Spurs TV: “What was very important for me was I wanted to play at a club where I could see myself for many years, and Tottenham was the one.

“I am very proud, very happy and excited. I think there is a fantastic future ahead for the club and I wanted so much to be a part of that.

“If you want to achieve the big things, you need 11 leaders on the pitch and to do that everyone needs to take responsibility in their position, bringing everything they have into the team. I always like to say whatever you put in, you get out.
“Spurs has fantastic players, a fantastic manager and a fantastic set-up.

“One of the first things I said, especially to my wife, was one day when the fans are allowed back in, I am to be the first one in that stadium because it is unreal. It is really one of the best, maybe the best.”
