Posting on Instagram, new Tottenham defender Djed Spence has bid his farewells to the Nottingham Forest supporters.

Spence completed a long-awaited move to Spurs on Tuesday morning, signing a five-year deal as the involved parties finally agreed on a fixed fee of £12.5 million which could rise to around £20 million with add-ons (Football.London).

Having spent last season on loan at Nottingham Forest, Spence was an inspiration for Steve Cooper’s men as they clinched a long-awaited return to Premier League football through the Championship play-off final (BBC).

The 21-year-old made 46 appearances in all competitions for Forest, combining three goals with five assists (Transfermarkt) as he played himself into the Championship team of the season (Sky Sports).

Spence could be granted a speedy return to the City Ground, as Spurs pay Forest a visit on game week four of the upcoming season (Nottinghamshire Live).

However, the England Under-21 international took to social media to address his former club and their fans – although there was no mention of parent club Middlesbrough, from whom Spurs actually signed the right-wing-back.

He said: “What a massive Club, what a team & what special fans. We came from the bottom and made it all the way to the top. We turned dreams into reality and I can’t thank you all enough for the special journey we all shared together.

“I’m looking forward to seeing you all back at the Famous City Ground. Once a Red always a Red.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Spence really excelled during his year under Cooper’s guidance and it is clear to see the connection that he has with Forest and their supporters.

I think the pace and trickery that the player will bring to N17 will get his new fans off their seats and it won’t be long until the Lilywhite faithful are singing his name.
