Sanchez joins Tottenham from Ajax in club-record deal

Tottenham have completed the signing of defender Davinson Sanchez from Ajax in a club-record deal that could rise to €42 million.

The 21-year-old Colombian centre-back is Spurs' first signing of the transfer window and has penned a contract running until 2023.

Sanchez's switch is subject to a medical and granting of a work permit, with Ajax receiving an initial €40m before potential add-ons.

Sanchez began his career with Atletico Nacional in his homeland, making his professional debut at 17 and helping them to Copa Libertadores glory in 2016 before joining Ajax in June of last year.

In November he was capped for the first time for Colombia at senior level and starred as part of the Ajax side that reached the final of the Europa League. He made 47 appearances for the Eredivisie giants and scored seven goals.
