After sealing a move to Galatasaray, Davinson Sanchez has taken to social media to admit that Tottenham will always have a special place in his heart.

The centre-back was widely backed to leave Tottenham throughout the summer (L’Equipe) but he stayed put beyond the closure of the European transfer window last Friday.

However, it was confirmed on Monday that the centre-back had sealed a switch to Galatasaray, with Turkish clubs being able to add players to their squad until September 18.

The Istanbul-based club, who have qualified for the group stages of the Champions League, have revealed that they will pay €9.5m (£8.1m) to the North London club for the 27-year-old’s services.

While Sanchez has not always been a regular in Tottenham’s starting eleven during his six-year spell at the club, he has delivered some crucial performances in big matches, particularly in his first few years in N17.

He also was not one to sulk or complain when he did not get opportunities, which is why he was valued highly by many different managers.
