Tottenham Hotspur agree a deal to sign Middlesbrough defender Djed Spence 

According to The Guardian, Tottenham Hotspur have reached an agreement with EFL Championship side Middlesbrough to sign promising, young full-back Djed Spence in a deal believed to be worth £20 million.

Spence was born in London and spent two years at the Fulham academy which makes him no stranger to the English capital. 

He was sent on loan to Nottingham Forest last season, where he played a starring role in their promotion to the Premier League. This saw him catch the attention of the top sides in English football.

Forest finished fourth in the standings and went on to beat Huddersfield Town in the play-off final to seal a return to the promised land after 23 years in exile. 

During the course of the campaign, Spence played a staggering 50 games across all competitions in what can only be called a ‘marathon season’, scoring thrice and registering five assists

Can Spence make the right wing-back position his own?

The 21-year-old’s stamina and endurance to last long seasons, coupled by his natural ability to adapt both as a right back and a right wingback instantly captured Spurs’ attention. 

Many clubs had been lining up for Spence, including Forest, who wanted to make his loan deal permanent and to no surprise either.

Spence is a natural fullback and is exactly the kind of young, talented and high-intensity player that Conte is seeking for his winning formula.

Following the struggles of Emerson Royal to adapt to Conte’s ways, Spence is definitely going to get a chance to shine and which if he does so, may make him a regular name on Conte’s XI. 

This arrival will mark the third signing of an already very busy transfer window for Spurs, following the arrivals of Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster on free transfers.
