Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the signing of Serge Aurier from Paris-Saint Germain. The Ivory Coast international joins the English side to replace Kyle Walker who left the UK capital for Manchester City.
Aurier’s transfer is not a surprise at all, with the news being known long ago. The only concern was the work permit for the player, which would allow him to settle down in England and play for the Spurs.
PSG also released a statement regarding the transfer, saying, “We wish good luck to Serge Aurier who joined Tottenham Hotspur”.
The right back signed a 5-year deal with Tottenham and will wear the number 24 jersey.
Serge said: “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. 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.”
