Official: Jose Mourinho makes the first transfer for Tottenham


English Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of young midfielder Gedson Fernandes from Portuguese club Benfica.

The news was officially announced by the North London-based club on their official website and Twitter account on Wednesday morning.

Fernandes becomes the first signing under manager Jose Mourinho at Spurs and the player will add much-needed depth to the squad which is currently struggling with injuries.

The 21-year-old has joined the last season’s UEFA Champions League runners-up on an 18-month loan deal with an option to make it permanent for a fee of £55 million.
