Wednesday 27 August 2014
Tottenham have completed the signing of Argentinian defender Federico Fazio from Primera Division outfit Sevilla.
The north London club announced on their official website that the 27-year-old centre-half had signed a four-year deal at White Hart Lane, following Michael Dawson's move to Hull on Tuesday.
"We are delighted to announce that we have completed the transfer of Federico Fazio from Sevilla," read a club statement. "The Argentina international has joined us on a four-year contract."
Introducing the defender to their supporters on the club's official website, a statement read: "The central defender, who was part of the Argentina sides that won the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in 2007 and Olympic gold in Beijing in 2008, began his career in his homeland with Ferro Carril Oeste before joining Sevilla in 2007.
"Capped twice at full international level, Fazio went on to make 194 appearances for the La Liga side and was also a key member of their Europa League winning team last season, beating Benfica on penalties in the final in Turin."
