Gedson Fernandes joins Tottenham from Benfica on an 18-month loan with an option to buy the 21-year-old midfielder for £42.76m (€50m)..
Fernandes turned down West Ham and Chelsea offers and opted to sign for Spurs, who are managed by fellow Portuguese Jose Mourinho.
Tottenham have been keen to strengthen their midfield following an injury to Moussa Sissoko, who has been sidelined for three months after undergoing surgery to the medial collateral ligament in his right knee.
