Tottenham have completed the £8million signing of Argentina international centre-back Federico Fazio from Sevilla, with the 27-year-old penning a four-year contract.

Spurs sold Michael Dawson to Hull City yesterday, and 6ft 5ins defender Fazio has immediately replaced him, having won the Europa League with Sevilla last season.

The new recruit said: “I come to Tottenham because I think it’s a very good team, and a very good club with very good fans.

“I know Spurs is a historic club in this country and league. This is a great club and I’m very happy to be here.”
