How Twitter reacted to Tottenham’s signing of defender Serge Aurier from Paris Saint-Germain

Written by

Tottenham’s summer transfer window seems to be hitting full flow with less than a day until the deadline as the north London side confirmed that Serge Aurier has signed from Paris Saint-Germain.

The 24-year-old right-back will join Mauricio Pochettino’s side on a five-year deal in a move BBC Sport believe will set Spurs back around £23 million, becoming their fourth arrival in the space of seven days.

There had been fears that a move for Aurier was in jeopardy as Tottenham waited to hear from the Home Office about whether the Ivorian would receive a UK work visa, following a conviction last year for assaulting police officers in the French capital, but his work permit has been granted in time to complete a move before the deadline.

Talking about his move to Tottenham, Aurier said:

“This is a huge and exciting opportunity at a massive football club and I am determined to prove myself”.

The 24-year-old managed 81 appearances across all competitions for PSG since arriving from fellow French outfit Toulouse in 2014, helping them secure back-to-back Ligue 1 and Coupe de France titles.
