Tottenham Hotspur have completed a deal to sign Destiny Udogie from Udinese.
He joins on a five-year deal but returns to the Italian side on a loan deal for the duration of the 2022-23 season.
As a result the 19-year-old will link up with Antonio Conte’s squad next summer.
“We are delighted to announce the permanent signing of Destiny Udogie from Udinese,” reads a statement on the club’s official website.
“The defender has agreed a deal that will run until 2027 and will return to the Serie A side on loan for the remainder of the 2022/23 season.
“Having progressed through the ranks at Hellas Verona, Destiny made his professional debut in November, 2020.
“The following year, he joined Udinese on loan – a deal which turned permanent in July, 2022 – and in his debut season with the Italian side he made 37 appearances in all competitions, scoring five goals.
“An Italy Under-21 international, Destiny made his debut for the Gli Azzurrini in September, 2021, in a European Championship qualifying fixture against Luxembourg. He has four caps to his name to date.”
