Spurs have exercised the option to convert the loan of Lo Celso from Real Betis Balompié 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.

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.

Inter are currently second in Serie A behind leaders Juventus.
