Danjuma completes Tottenham loan after nearly joining Everton

Tottenham have completed the loan signing of Villarreal forward Arnaut Danjuma - just days after he nearly joined Everton.

Sky Sports News reported on Monday that Danjuma would join managerless Everton on Tuesday. The move was still expected to go through despite the sacking of Frank Lampard, who played a key role in the deal

However, in a dramatic twist, the Netherlands international suddenly travelled to London to hold talks with Spurs, and the 25-year-old has now finalised his move to Antonio Conte's side.

Tottenham have the option to buy Danjuma once his initial loan finishes at the end of the season.

His arrival in north London will boost Conte's attacking options, with Heung-Min Son, Dejan Kulusevski, Richarlison and Lucas Moura each having experienced injury issues this term.

Spurs are boosted by the news that Danjuma will be able to play in the Champions League. They face AC Milan in the last 16, with the first of two legs taking place on February 14.
