Tottenham Agree Deal To Make Destiny Udogie 7th Summer Signing Before Loaning Him Out

Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a deal with Udinese to sign 19-year-old left-back Destiny Udogie.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte had already added Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Djed Spence and Clement Lenglet to his first-team squad this summer.

Udogie is set to become Tottenham's seventh summer signing but he will not join up with his new teammates until 2023.

According to BBC Sport, Spurs will loan Udogie back to Udinese until the end of the 2022/23 campaign.

He fits the mould of what Conte wants from a wing-back as he is tall, athletic and hard-working, as well as being technically gifted, allowing him to affect the game at both ends of the pitch.

Tottenham are already well stocked on the left flank with Ivan Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon set to compete for the position of first-choice wing-back this season.

Spurs also have Ben Davies, who can perform at wing-back if required, while Conte is actively trying to sell Sergio Reguilon.
