Tottenham Hotspur have now officially announced the club have reached an agreement with Sunderland for the permanent transfer of Dennis Cirkin.
Cirkin never made a senior appearance for the first team but played 14 times for the U23 side in the Premier League 2 last season.
Football Insider reported earlier this week that Dennis Cirkin had arrived at Sunderland to complete his permanent move. Spurs reportedly accepted a six-figure offer from the English league club for the 19-year-old left-back.
While some Spurs fans may be disappointed at the club letting such a highly-rated prospect leave, the report claimed Cirkin had actually rejected a new deal from the Lilywhites.
The defender apparently wanted an opportunity to play more consistent first-team football, which is why Sunderland could benefit his career growth rather than playing as the fourth choice behind Sergio Reguilon, Ben Davies, and Ryan Sessegnon.
Cirkin will reportedly walk straight into the Sunderland XI this season and will likely earn consistent minutes on the pitch.
Spurs Web Opinion:
It’s so sad to see a highly-rated youngster leave the club but it is what it is. Spurs can’t offer him consistent minutes and Cirkin doesn’t want to wait around. Sometimes a solution cannot be reached. At least this way we get some money for him.
