Tottenham have confirmed the signing of midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton.

The 25-year-old Denmark international has signed a five-year contract and becomes Tottenham‘s first signing of the off-season.

Spurs also announced that right-back Kyle Walker-Peters had completed a permanent transfer to Southampton after spending the second half of the 2019-20 season on loan at St. Mary’s.

Hojbjerg moves to north London after spending four seasons with Southampton, where he made a total of 128 appearances and scored five goals.

The former Bayern Munich man will help provide cover in defensive midfield for Spurs and will wear the No. 5, which was vacated when Jan Vertonghen confirmed he would leave the club this summer.

“I wanted to play in a club where I could see myself for many years,” Hojbjerg told Tottenham’s official website.

“Tottenham was just the one. I’m very proud, very happy and excited. I think there’s a fantastic future ahead for the club.”

Success! You’re on the list.
