Spurs have exercised the option to convert the loan of Lo Celso from Real Betis BalompiƩ to a permanent transfer and he has signed a deal to stay at the club until 2025.

The midfielder has produced impressive performances after establishing himself in the team following a hip injury which restricted his playing time in the early part of his loan at the club.

A former player at Rosario Central and Paris Saint-Germain, Lo Celso has appeared in 20 games for Spurs so far in all competitions and registered two goals, including netting the first FA Cup goal against Middlesbrough earlier this month.

The 23-year-old is now expected to play a vital role in the team especially with Eriksen finally heading for the exit door.

Eriksen made 305 appearances during his six-and-a-half year spell in north London, scoring 69 goals and providing 89 assists.

The Denmark international has become the third signing Inter have made from the Premier League this month, having already brought in Ashley Young from Manchester United and Victor Moses from Chelsea.
