Tottenham Hotspur announced today that they had exercised the option to make Lo Celso’s transfer to the North London club permanent this month.
Lo Celso had originally been on a season-long loan deal from Real Betis in Spain, but Tottenham had the option to sign him permanently as early as January.
The Argentine signed a contract with the Lilywhites that will run until 2025 after making some impressive performances of late under Jose Mourinho.
It was a slow start in the career of Lo Celso at Tottenham, as his early months were plagued with substitute appearances and injuries.
However, he has finally settled into the pace of English football and now seems to be one of the first names on Mourinho’s team sheet.
Lo Celso has now sent his first message to fans since signing the contract, stating that he is grateful to represent the Lilywhites, before thanking the supporters for getting behind him.
I’m really excited to officialize my contract with @SpursOfficial and truly gratefull to keep on representing this club. Thanks to everyone who makes #THFC possible, and especially to the fans for the support ?⚽?? #COYS #2025 ———————— pic.twitter.com/zAI0o2u6jm
