Gedson Fernandes’ first day as a Tottenham Hotspur player has been documented by the club in a ‘behind the scenes’ video.

The Benfica midfielder arrived at Hotspur Way where he was seen undergoing his medical assessment before posing for photographs after putting pen to paper on his 18-month loan deal.

Fernandes conducted his first interview with the club’s official media outlet but somewhat disappointingly there was no footage of him meeting any of the club’s backroom staff or squad.

The 21-year-old made his debut for Benfica last season and Spurs have the option to make his signing permanent at the end of the loan period.

He moves to North London at a time where midfielders Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele are injured, while Christian Eriksen’s future still looks ever increasingly in doubt.

Fernandes was also linked with the likes of Manchester United, West Ham and Chelsea but decided to link up with compatriot Jose Mourinho (Daily Star).
