Spurs and Saints complete Hojbjerg/Walker-Peters swap

Tottenham have announced the signing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton with Kyle Walker-Peters going the other way.

Denmark midfielder Hojbjerg, 25, has signed a five year contract with Spurs for a reported fee of £15m (€16.7m) plus bonuses.

The former Bayern Munich talent becomes Jose Mourinho’s first signing of the summer and will wear the number five shirt.

Hojbjerg made 134 appearances for Southampton and wore the captain’s armband.

However, after making his desire to leave public in June, he was stripped of the captaincy.

Everton and Ajax both wanted the hard-working Dane, but he jumped at the chance to work with with Mourinho.

In a separate deal, 23-year-old full-back Walker-Peters has joined Southampton for around £12m (€13.35m).

The former England under-21 player moves to St Mary’s permanently following a good loan spell.

Walker-Peters played in all nine of the Saints’ games after the Premier League restart.

He has penned a five-year deal with the Saints.
