Emerson Royal, a right defender from Barcelona, has signed a five-year contract with Tottenham. The Brazilian international underwent his physical on Tuesday morning after the clubs had agreed on a €30 million (£25.7 million) fee.

‘We are thrilled to announce the signing of Emerson Royal from Barcelona, subject to international clearance and a work visa,’ Tottenham said in a statement.

‘The right back has signed a contract with us until 2026 and will wear the No12 shirt.’

Emerson, who was left out of Brazil’s squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers, will go to London later this week from Spain.

Emerson has just recently returned to the club after a three-year loan spell with Real Betis under Manuel Pellegrini, where he excelled.
