Porro, Soonsup-Bell, Danjuma: Every Tottenham done deal as club land top January transfer target

Tottenham may have left it late but manager Antonio Conte was at least able to strengthen his squad during the January transfer window.

While the Italian’s long-term future remains up for debate, Spurs were able to draft in reinforcement as Conte attempts an assault on the top four during the second half of the season.

Champions League qualification feels vitally important if the club wish to keep either Conte or Harry Kane and the prospect of going through the entire month without making a signing would have unpalatable to supporters.

Pedro Porro – Sporting, £39m

Jude Soonsup-Bell – Chelsea, undisclosed

Porro had been Spurs’ leading target and signing him after a dramatic pursuit is a major boost. Conte has been eager to bring in a new right sided wing-back and the Spanish international is seen as huge upgrade on Emerson Royal, Matt Doherty and Djed Spence.

Danjuma, who Spurs stole from Everton’s grasp, offers cover to a frontline which has been decimated by injuries to Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski throughout the campaign. Soonsup-Bell, meanwhile, will join the club’s U21 squad before a loan exit this summer.

Bryan Gil – Sevilla, loan

Matt Doherty – Atletico Madrid, free transfer

Djed Spence – Rennes, loan

Harvey White - Derby, loan

Adam Hayton - Barnsley, undisclosed

None of Gil, Doherty or Spence had convinced Conte, so their exits will unlikely have too much of an impact on Spurs’ first-team between now and the end of the season.
