Report: New Spurs signing in line for debut against Brighton

The Evening Standard have revealed that Dejan Kulisevski is in line to make his debut against Brighton on Saturday after the Sweden international received his work permit following his move to Spurs.

Spurs completed a double swoop from Juventus on transfer deadline day, with Kulusevski being joined by Rodrigo Bentancur in North London.

The Swede joined the Lilywhites in an 18-month loan deal from Juventus for which Spurs paid £8.3million. The North Londoners have the option to make the deal permanent in the summer of 2023 (Football Insider).

The Evening Standard have now revealed that the 21-year-old has been cleared to train with the Tottenham squad today after his work permit was given the green light.

However, Bentancur, who Spurs paid £20m for (Football.London), is still thought to be waiting for his work permit.

The Uruguayan international is due to arrive at Hotspur Way today from international duty but he cannot train with the squad until he receives his permit.

With Son now having returned from injury (Lyall Thomas), one would expect the South Korean to come back straight back into the starting eleven on Saturday if he is fully fit. I expect Kulusevski to start on the bench and potentially come on for a cameo.
